World Federation of Hemophilia Strategic Plan 2015-17

One of the keys to the WFH’s success has been the rigorous strategic planning that takes place every five years to identify and assess the challenges on the horizon and develop a planned course of action to further our mission and vision. Our strategic plan provides an important framework and focus to prioritize and measure our successes, as well as continuity of purpose.

Our strategic plan for the next three to five years takes into account the global opportunities and challenges facing the bleeding disorders community, as well as our organizational strengths to develop a plan for the continued success of the WFH in our mission to improve care for all people with inherited bleeding disorders.

This plan includes a number of enhancements: 

  • Improving access to safe and effective products through advocacy and product donations. 
  • Defining practice standards, supporting clinical research to provide data and evidence to make the case for better care. 
  • Supporting our NMOs with a special focus both on growing the next generation of leaders and strengthening advocacy to governments and all stakeholders concerned.
  • Addressing the needs of people with von Willebrand disease, rare factor deficiencies, inherited platelet disorders, and women with inherited bleeding disorders by ensuring that these under-represented populations are included in all our programs and activities.
  • Taking a regional approach to healthcare development to focus resources and activities and to adapt our tools to regional realities.
  • Increasing use of digital communications to educate, train, share information, and connect our network.
  • Diversifying sources of revenue for sustainability and to allow expansion of our work.
  • Adapting our organizational structure and maximize impact of our programs and activities.
