Message from the Presidents

On behalf of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) and The Haemophilia Society (THS), we are looking forward to welcoming you to Glasgow, Scotland, for the WFH 2018 World Congress. The XXXIII International Congress of the World Federation of Hemophilia is expected bring together global attendees from over 134 countries.

Building on the success of our previous Congresses, the WFH 2018 World Congress is the perfect forum to foster collaborations, networks, and relationships to transfer knowledge; to learn, share, and problem-solve through discussions amongst delegates from diverse cultural and contextual settings.

The WFH World Congress brings together all members of our patient community, along with a wide range of professional backgrounds including hematologists, pediatricians, orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, physiotherapists, dentists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, geneticists, laboratory technicians, researchers, scientists, policy makers, and advocates.

The Congress program will provide an innovative and comprehensive overview in the latest developments, current patient healthcare issues, and the challenges ahead in the management and treatment for all people with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, rare factor deficiencies, and inherited platelet disorders worldwide. In addition, there will be ample opportunities to network, share experiences, and make new friends during engaging social events.

The WFH 2018 World Congress will take place at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC), Scotland’s premier venue for international conferences. Congress participants will have easy access to the vibrant city of Glasgow as the SEC is located on the north bank of the River Clyde. We proudly welcome the global community to discover the hospitality and beauty of Scotland.
