Join us for a high-profile six-day virtual event

The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) is committed to bringing the bleeding disorders community together in the name of Treatment for All. This commitment is especially important during the COVID-19 crisis. In June 2020, we will be bringing our community together virtually.

What is the WFH Virtual Summit?

The WFH Virtual Summit is a series of FREE live and recorded sessions that will take place from June 14 to 19, 2020 and will allow you to connect with the community and increase your knowledge from the comfort of your home or office. All sessions will be recorded and available for viewing later.

The WFH Virtual Summit will be held in English with closed captioning in French, Spanish, Russian and Arabic for select Plenaries, WFH, Multidisciplinary and Medical Sessions.

*Closed captioning is only available for desktop users. Mobile devices, including cell phones and tablets, are not compatible with the closed captioning software.

What to expect:

  1. Inspiring keynotes and dozens of concurrent sessions
  2. Professional multidisciplinary tracks for nurses, as well as psychosocial, dental, lab sciences and musculoskeletal practitioners
  3. Pre-summit events, workshops, and late-breaking sessions
  4. Interactive ePoster sessions, the WFH State-of-the-Art Book and the Book of Abstracts
  5. Mindfulness exercise breaks

Call for Abstracts

The WFH Virtual Summit Committee will be accepting late-breaking abstracts submissions which focus on medical and multidisciplinary approaches to hemophilia for presentations to be given during the WFH Virtual Summit, which is taking place from June 14 to 19, 2020.

Late-breaking abstracts should describe the latest advances that will change our daily clinical practice and should highlight novel and practice-changing studies. The selection process will favour abstracts with leading-edge and unique data that would not otherwise have been presented during the WFH Virtual Summit.

Late-breaking abstracts will be accepted for consideration via our online submission system as of May 4, 2020.

The submission period has now ended. Acceptance status will be communicated shortly.
