Advocacy symposia

During WFH World Congress years, the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) will organize advocacy symposia. The objectives of the symposia consist of the following:

  • Provide a brief overview of the various components of the Advocacy in Action Program
  • Highlight the Program’s achievements
  • Recognize the funder’s contribution
  • Share examples of successful advocacy campaigns
  • Provide an opportunity for the audience to exchange advocacy experiences, challenges and best practices, and thus to learn from each other
  • Offer an opportunity to network and make connections that will help them implement their activities in the future
  • Enhance participants’ understanding of the guiding principles of good advocacy and of the role of advocacy as an important method to increase public awareness, advance health care goals, and obtain government support
