The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) and The Hemophilia Society of Malaysia (HSM), are excited to welcome our global bleeding disorders community to beautiful Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the upcoming WFH 2020 World Congress—a major event in our community that is expected to bring together attendees from over 134 countries.

The WFH World Congress brings together all members of our community, including patients, hematologists, pediatricians, orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, physiotherapists, dentists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, geneticists, laboratory technicians, researchers, scientists, policy makers, regulators, advocates and industry representatives. This important event is the perfect forum for participants to foster collaborations, extend their network, share knowledge with colleagues, and problem-solve through discussions with delegates from diverse backgrounds.

The Congress program will provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest developments in our field, current patient healthcare issues, and the challenges ahead in the management and treatment for people with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, rare factor deficiencies and inherited platelet disorders worldwide. In addition to the Congress’ rich scientific program, there will also be ample opportunities for participants to make new friends and reconnect with old ones during engaging social events.

The WFH 2020 World Congress will take place at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre—conveniently located in the City Center of Kuala Lumpur, one of Asia’s most exciting and vibrant cities strategically located in the midst of the Asia Pacific Region, full of wonderful sights, lively neighbourhoods, magnificent architecture and cultural heritage. Warm, welcoming and friendly, this world-class city is a perfect reflection of Malaysia’s rich culture.

We encourage the bleeding disorder community to participate in our Congress and support the work of the WFH to make positive impact on people living with Hemophilia around the world.

On behalf of everyone at the WFH and HSM, we extend a heartfelt welcome to our global community as they prepare to explore and experience the hospitality and beauty of Malaysia!
