What is the Development Grant Program?

The WFH Development Grant Program (DGP) aims to encourage new and innovative ideas and projects to support the inherited bleeding disorders community worldwide.

The program is designed to provide support for new and innovative projects from WFH patient organizations, related to one or more of the six areas of the WFH Development Model, with the aim of achieving sustainable comprehensive care and Treatment for All.

  • Empower NMOs to better advocate and support the improvements of bleeding disorders care in their countries

The WFH will award one-time grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 USD for a duration of 6 to 24 months.


The Development Grant Program is open to all NMOs.
