WFH Humanitarian Aid Program

The lack of access to care and treatment in developing countries is an urgent and important public health challenge.

The WFH is leading the effort to change this lack of access by providing consistent and predictable treatment for all people with inherited bleeding disorders.




Visionary Contributors Contributors
Bioverativ CSL Behring
Sobi Green Cross

The visionary contribution from Bioverativ, a Sanofi company, and Sobi to the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program translates into 500 million IUs over five years (2015-2020). Bioverativ and Sobi also make ongoing substantial financial contributions to support the logistics of product delivery and training of providers and patients in humanitarian aid countries. Furthermore, the eight-year commitment (2014-2021) from Grifols totaling 200 million IUs, along with a ten-year commitment (2009-2018) from CSL Behring for a total of 22 million IUs, and the three-year agreement (2017-2019) with Green Cross for 6 million IUs, allows for a more predictable and sustainable flow of humanitarian aid donations to the global community.
