World Haemophilia Day

April 17

The theme of World Hemophilia Day in 2020 is “Get+involved”. It’s a call to action for everyone to help drive the WFH vision of “Treatment for all” at the community and global level. Whether you are a patient, a family member or caregiver, a corporate partner, a volunteer, or a healthcare provider, we want to encourage you to help increase the awareness of inherited bleeding disorders and the need to make access to adequate care possible everywhere in the world.

This landmark day also helps to illustrate the importance the WFH has developed to support the bleeding disorders community. The WFH Humanitarian Aid Program provides a range of integrated care development training programs to ensure the local infrastructure and medical expertise are available to optimize and appopriately use donated prodcts. The Global Alliance for Progress (GAP) Program was developed to greatly increase the diagnosis and treatment of people with bleeding disorders by closing the gap in treatme of people with bleeding disorders by closing the gap in treatment between developed and developing countries.

Stay tuned as we take together the first step to care!


Join us once again in showing your support to the global bleeding disorders community by taking part in the World Hemophilia Day Light it Up Red! campaign. Last year, thousands of people worldwide united to show their support by lighting up over 70 major landmarks in cities across the world.
We invite you to take part in this initiative by encouraging a local landmark (big or small) to light it up red. Post photos and engage with the bleeding disorders community on social media pages and share what World Hemophilia Day means to you!
