Inga Marie Nilsson Award

This award was created in 2000 in honour of distinguished physician and clinical scientist Inga Marie Nilsson (1923–1999) of Malmö, Sweden. Professor Nilsson was a pioneer in hemophilia research and treatment. Her preventive approach to treatment, hemophilia prophylaxis, has become the guiding principle for treatment centres around the world.

The award is given to an individual or pair of WFH volunteers who have contributed substantially with leadership and initiative to advancing the WFH mission to improve hemophilia care, especially in emerging countries. It is presented every two years at the WFH World Congress. The award includes a monetary prize funded by Professor Nilsson’s family and Octapharma. This prize is directed in its entirety toward the WFH project championed by the recipient of the Inga Marie Nilsson Award.

The WFH is grateful to Octapharma for its commitment to the award and the legacy of Professor Inga Marie Nilsson.
