World Haemophilia Day 2021

Every year on 17 April World Haemophilia Day is recognised worldwide to increase awareness of haemophilia, von Willebrand disease and other inherited bleeding disorders. This is a critical effort since with increased awareness comes better diagnosis and access to care for the millions who remain without treatment.
 
World Haemophilia Day was started in 1989 by the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH), which chose 17 April as the day to bring the community together in honour of WFH founder Frank Schnabel’s birthday.
 
This year the theme is Adapting to Change.  Living during a pandemic can pose many challenges, not only for our health, but also for our mental health and wellbeing. In 2021 World Hemophilia Day is a platform across the globe for exploring our community’s resilience and how we will overcome this new challenge - as we have overcome other challenges in the past.
