Welcome page for healthcare professionals

For over 50 years, the WFH has provided global leadership to improve and sustain care for people with inherited bleeding disorders. Learn more about our work.

A suite of resources presenting highlights of the 2014 World Congress in Melbourne is available at the Congress eResources page. It includes a free accredited CME eLearning module entitled “Issues in the Design of Clinical Trials for Hemophilia;” panel discussions between patient advocates, internationally renowned hematologists, and members of the comprehensive care team; webcasts of 30 individual expert presentations; and over 400 ePosters.

The WFH offers free access to many resources in order to share knowledge and build awareness globally through information exchange, education and training. Of particular interest to healthcare professionals are the WFH’s Guidelines for the Management of Hemophilia (revised and referenced in 2012), the Compendium of Assessment Tools, the most recent Global Survey Report.

The About Bleeding Disorders section of our website provides basic information on hemophilia, including carriers and women with hemophilia, inhibitors, and prophylaxis; as well as von Willebrand disease, rare factor deficiencies, and inherited platelet disorders.

Search our library of over 300 publications in six languages for more advanced resources on each of these topics.
