Regional and National Programs

WFH Programming

The healthcare development work of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) is carried out in collaboration with its national member organizations (NMOs) and a dedicated group of medical and lay volunteers.

It is based on a comprehensive development model that aims to achieve sustainable comprehensive care and Treatment for All. The WFH carries out its work through country-specific as well as global programs and activities. It focuses on:

  • Implementing national healthcare development programs to achieve sustainable comprehensive care
  • Implementing targeted country development action plans
  • Expanding capacity to achieve accurate laboratory diagnosis
  • Expanding training for health professionals
  • Implementing NMO leadership skills training nationally, regionally, and globally
  • Promoting NMO development

Regional and National Reach

The work of the WFH has a three-tiered approach that can build progressively over time.

  1. “Underserved” countries may be considered for a Cornerstone Initiative when they, or their regions, demonstrate initiative, motivation, and potential to develop basic standards of care.
  2. Where there is the initiative, motivation, and potential to work more in-depth on improving hemophilia care, countries may be considered for Country Programs.
  3. When a Country Program demonstrates the potential for establishing a national hemophilia care program that is integrated within the health system and covers all or most areas of hemophilia care development, it may be considered for the Global Alliance for Progress (GAP) Program.
