World Haemophilia Day 2019



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, 2019, will mark the 30th World Hemophilia Day



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.  #WHD2019
