World Haemophilia Day 2023
Every year on 17th April, we come together to raise awareness and drive change for people living with haemophilia. This year’s theme is ‘Access for All: Prevention of bleeds as the global standard of care,’ which highlights the need for better access to treatments and care, ultimately aiming to support people with bleeding disorders to effectively manage their condition.
Meet Joshua. He spends his weekends playing video games, mountain biking, and hanging out with his friends – and he has haemophilia. Hear from Joshua on why living with a bleeding disorder doesn’t hold him back from doing the activities he loves.
Haemophilia is a lifelong condition in which blood does not clot properly, often causing unexplained and excessive bleeding that is not the result of injury. However, today there is a standard of care available that can help patients to live an active, independent, and fulfilling life.
Each year, we mark World Haemophilia Day on the 17th April. Together as a community, we are working to improve awareness and education for people living with bleeding disorders.
