World Hemophilia Day 2020 | April 17

World Hemophilia Day is an international awareness day for hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. It is held annually on April 17, date of the birthday of Frank Schnabel, founder of the World Federation of Hemophilia.

Since 1989, World Hemophilia Day is the day the whole bleeding disorders community comes together to celebrate the continuous advances in treatment while raising awareness and bringing understanding and attention to the issues related to proper care to the wider public.

Happy World Hemophilia Day!

Today is a day to Get+involved virtually and celebrate our hard work and dedication in the name of Treatment for All. Given the current COVID-19 crisis, the WFH wants to engage with you virtually via social media and right here on this microsite.

As we all navigate through these difficult times, we want you to continue to feel connected and to know that we are with you. We are in it together!
