World Haemophilia Day 2018
Every April 17 World Haemophilia Day is recognised worldwide to increase awareness of haemophilia 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 to bring the community together on April 17 in honour of WFH founder Frank Schnabel’s birthday.
April 17, 2018, will mark the 28th World Hemophilia Day!
In 2018 the theme is SHARING KNOWLEDGE MAKES US STRONGER
On World Haemophilia Day share your personal experiences and knowledge with one another.
HFA will be celebrating peer support and bleeding disorders awareness on World Haemophilia Day by launching a series of new personal stories.
Light it up Red!
Landmarks and monuments in Australia and around the world will support World Haemophilia Day by changing their lighting red on April 17. Show your support on the night, and post photos on our Facebook page of you and your friends at the landmark. #WHD2018
