Hemophilia 2010 World Congress

Hemophilia 2010, the XXIX International Congress of the World Federation of Hemophilia, was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from Saturday 10 July to Wednesday 14 July 2010.

The congress brought together more than 4,300 delegates from 106 countries to take part in a diverse and exciting program. Sessions covered medical, multidisciplinary and laboratory science issues, with topics of special interest for people with bleeding disorders, members of national haemophilia organisations and health professionals.

About the program
On Saturday delegates could participate in the very popular free Pre-Congress workshops and sessions, including sessions for specialist nurses, physiotherapists and social workers. These offer delegates valuable skills and knowledge to integrate into their own work and communities once they return home.

Each congress day began with two plenary sessions led by some of the world's most distinguished researchers, physicians, and community leaders. The plenaries had a focus on current and future treatments, ageing, von Willebrand disorder, mild haemophilia and women.

General sessions were in 6 concurrent streams and included state-of-the-art symposia, presentations, and 'Meet the Experts' sessions on highly topical issues across a wide range of subjects related to living with bleeding disorders, providing services and care and community development.
