World Federation of Hemophilia

The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) deeply believes that where you live should not determine your access to care and treatment for an inherited bleeding disorder.

We work to ensure every person⁠—including those living with hemophilia and von Willebrand disease (VWD), those with rare factor deficiencies, and women with bleeding disorders⁠—have access to world-class care and recognition of their condition. Our corporate partners, donors, and volunteers all share this belief and we thank them for their past and ongoing contributions.

The reality is that the majority of those affected with a bleeding disorder receive inadequate levels of care, and, in many cases, no treatment at all. The WFH and our global network of national member organizations (NMOs) represent the interests of people with hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders in 140 countries. Our NMOs are the backbone of our organization. They keep us abreast of challenges faced on the ground, help us organize workshops to train healthcare professionals, and act as effective and dedicated advocates for patient concerns within their community. We thank these tireless volunteers for all they do every day on behalf of our community.

Our Vision and Mission

Our vision of Treatment for All is that one day, all people with a bleeding disorder will enjoy a more certain future filled with promise, no matter where they live. The mission of the WFH is to improve and sustain care for people with inherited bleeding disorders around the world. In order to achieve this, we actively pursue long-term relationships with individuals and organizations who share the values inherent in our comprehensive development model.

WFH Strategic Priorities: 2018–2020

To continue to support our mission of improving and sustaining care for all people with inherited bleeding disorders, our Strategic Plan for 2018 to 2020 considers the global opportunities and challenges facing the bleeding disorders community along with our organizational strengths.

  1. IMPROVE OUTREACH AND DIAGNOSIS of people with bleeding disorders
