World Hemophilia Day 2020

Get+involved virtually and stay safe

April 17, 2020 is World Hemophilia Day. It's a very important day for the World Federation of Hemophila (WFH) and the bleeding disorders community—but nothing is more important to us than your health and wellbeing. The WFH wants to ensure that everyone celebrates the big day in a way that is sensitive to the risks of the current global novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Below are some recommendations on how you can “Get+involved” on April 17 in a way that is safe for you, your family, and your community. We’re in this together, so here’s how we can celebrate together in the name of “Treatment for All”.

Celebrate with the community virtually!

Celebrating with friends and family has always been a big part of World Hemophilia Day, but this year, stay home and use your internet-connected device to Get+involved:

If you have any questions about the best way to stay safe on World Hemophilia Day, feel free to contact Erika Laincy, WFH Marketing & Communications Manager, at .

This landmark day also helps to illustrate the importance the WFH has developed to support the bleeding disorders community. The WFH Humanitarian Aid Program provides a range of integrated care development training programs to ensure the local infrastructure and medical expertise are available to optimize and appropriately use donated products. The Global Alliance for Progress (GAP) Program was developed to greatly increase the diagnosis and treatment of people with bleeding disorders by closing the gap in treatment of people with bleeding disorders by closing the gap in treatment between developed and developing countries.

Stay tuned as we take together the first step to care!

World Hemophilia Day 2019

OUTREACH AND IDENTIFICATION

April 17, 2019, will mark the 29th World Hemophilia Day!
This year, the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) is focusing on reaching out and identifying new members of the bleeding disorders community. For many years, the WFH has supported outreach projects in different countries and conducted educational events for both lay and health care professionals in conjunction with our national member organizations (NMOs).

The WHD2019 campaign will feature examples of WFH outreach initiatives such as organizing regional workshops, raising awareness of bleeding through media coverage or training health professionals and collecting data. It will combine these examples with submissions from our community about outreach efforts in their own regions or ideas about what would be helpful for future initiatives.

This landmark day also helps to illustrate the importance of the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program—an important endeavour for the WFH that provides a range of integrated care development training programs to ensure the local infrastructure and medical expertise are available to optimize and appropriately use donated products.

Stay tuned as we take together the first step to care!

World Hemophilia Day 2016

TREATMENT FOR ALL IS THE VISION OF ALL

Join us on April 17 to raise awareness about hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders. Globally 1 in 1,000 people has a bleeding disorder. Most are not diagnosed and do not receive treatment. Together we can change that. World Hemophilia Day provides an opportunity to talk to your family and friends, colleagues, and caregivers to raise awareness and increase support for those living with an inherited bleeding disorder.

Light it Up Red!

We encourage the WFH community to come together and show support in raising awareness for global bleeding disorders by lighting it up red. Each year we have added new landmarks and monuments to the list of WFH partners who support World Hemophilia Day by changing their lighting red on April 17. If there is a landmark near you contact them to see if it can be lit in red on April 17. If not, pull out those red holiday lights and participate at home. This April 17, join us in lighting it up red!

World Hemophilia Day 2015

BUILDING A FAMILY OF SUPPORT

Join us on April 17 to raise awareness about bleeding disorders and the need to build a family of support for those living with them.
Families come in many forms but they all share the ability to support and advocate. World Hemophilia Day provides an opportunity to talk to your extended family and friends, colleagues, and caregivers to raise awareness and increase support for those living with an inherited bleeding disorder.

You can also go one step further and have a local landmark, a light in your home or office, or your front porch light lit in red on April 17 to show your commitment to the bleeding disorder community.

This year connect the global bleeding disorder family on the World Federation of Hemophilia social media network and encourage your online community to join the global family.

SPEAK OUT: CREATE CHANGE

In 2014, World Hemophilia Day focused on encouraging the global bleeding disorders community to Speak out. Create change. In 2014 we made a particular effort to reach out to young members of the community so as to promote their participation and to develop strong leadership. We wanted our young members to feel inspired to assume key roles in building and supporting the bleeding disorders community.
