World Haemophilia Day

Every April 17th, World Haemophilia Day is marked worldwide with the goal of increasing awareness of haemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders. This is a critical effort since with increased awareness comes better diagnosis and access to care for the millions who remain without treatment. 

To raise awareness on the day the Southern Haemophilia Network will be talking to various patients, staff and the public about haemophilia and bleeding disorders, while some of our hospitals have organised stalls, wearing red clothing and handing out red coloured food to everyone!

You can also support World Haemophilia Day in a variety of ways. Visit the World Federation of Hemophilia's page by clicking here to find out more. You can also visit their Facebook page to get involved further.
