World Haemophilia Day

Wear RED on World Haemophilia Day and help to close the gap of care

 An estimated 1 in 1,000 women and men has a bleeding disorder. However, 75% still receive very inadequate treatment or no treatment at all. What will it take to close the gap?

On World Haemophilia Day 2012 help us “Close the Gap” of care around the world. Together, we can work towards a day when treatment will be available for all globally.

On World Haemophilia Day we want to inspire people to help close the gap and to improve accessibility and quality of care so that Treatment for All becomes a reWhat will it take to close the gap?ality.

Every year on April 17, World Haemophilia Day is celebrated around the world in order to increase awareness of haemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders.

World Haemophilia Day was started in 1989 and the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) chose April 17 in honor of WFH founder Frank Schnabel, who was born on that day.

On April 17, help us spread the message to “Close the Gap” of care around the world.

Raise money to help WFH close the gap for international projects by Wearing Red on World Haemophilia Day, and donate online at or send your donation to HFA 1624 High St, Glen Iris VIC 3146. All donations will be redirected to the World Federation of Hemophilia.
