Youth Update

Hannah Opeskin is Health Promotion Officer, Haemophilia Foundation Australia


Factored In is in the process of being further developed to reflect the needs of the young people who use it. A redesign and restructure is estimated to start in September and a review panel of young people has been established to ensure that the website continues to reflect the wishes and interests of young people with bleeding disorders.

We are planning on changing the entire site to make it look and feel new! This includes a new menu, news feed, new calendar and an even an updated Q & A section. The site will be so much easier and clearer to use!

If you want to help out with the website, have your say about design concepts or see the design before anyone else then join the review panel!

If you are interested please contact Hannah Opeskin


This year, the Australia and New Zealand Haemophilia and related Bleeding Disorders Conference will have many youth activities including a comprehensive and exciting youth session involving topics such as transition and disclosure as well as a Youth VIP event.

Meet new friends and say hi to your old ones at the Youth VIP Meet & Mingle social event.
Get some great advice and be involved in cutting edge discussions on sex, transition and disclosure.

If you haven’t registered yet, head to the HFA website:

The HFA conference is a great opportunity to make new friends, see your old ones, learn about exciting new treatments on the horizon and get involved in some controversial topics!

I can’t wait to see you all there!
