Advocacy project grants

These grants are designed to help patient organizations that participated in an Advocacy in Action workshop apply their new skills by designing and implementing an advocacy project in their country. The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) offers a number of grants per year, ranging between $1,000-$5,000 US dollars. Proposals would be submitted to a WFH selection committee for review and approval of a project grant. Grant recipients also benefit from the assistance of a WFH advisor who is skilled in advocacy and lobbying techniques.
