April 17 marks World Haemophilia Day. This year’s theme is “Sharing Knowledge Makes Us Stronger.”

The bleeding disorders community is filled with the first-hand knowledge and experience needed to help increase awareness, as well as to improve access to care and treatment. The WFH website has an extensive and informative resource base. http://elearning.wfh.org/

Another way of sharing knowledge is by meeting with others in our community. We organise a regular events programme which is FREE for members. It’s a fun and engaging way to make friends and share knowledge and experience.

To show support and raise awareness of bleeding disorders, landmarks across Scotland will be lit red. Haemophilia Scotland has received confirmation that these landmarks are are: Edinburgh Castle, Glasgow Science Centre, Horse on the M8, Jenners Department Store (Edinburgh), Melville Monument (Edinburgh), Ness Bridge, SSE Hydro, The Titan Crane and Marischal Hall (Aberdeen). Show your support and post photos on our Facebook page of you and your friends at the landmark. #WHD2018
