The 17th Australian & New Zealand Conference on haemophilia and related bleeding disorders was a great success. It was attended by 225 delegates, including people with bleeding disorders, their families and carers, health professionals, policy makers, industry representatives and many other stakeholders who came together to meet, share information and learn from each other.
The diverse program was developed by a multidisciplinary committee chaired by Dr Simon McRae, and covered a range of interesting and challenging topics. We thank all the speakers and session chairs who contributed to our meeting.
Presentations and the abstract book are available to download from our website www.haemophilia.org.au/conferences
Thank you to our conference sponsors and supporters.

WHAT DID THE DELEGATES SAY?
“It had the right amount of information for both myself and my girlfriend that didn’t know about haemophilia and now know a little more than before. I thank you for that.”
“Loved the mix of specialist/carer/personal experience in each session”
“It has made me want to work harder in this therapeutic area.”
“A broad range of topics for both health professionals and families.”
“Good for networking.”
“So glad we got to come. It was also a good way for us to touch base with other families in similar situations which doesn't happen a lot for us and we get a lot out of that.”
“It has given me hope that our boys may have the chance to use a longer acting factor in the future and that this will hopefully see even further improvements in the quality of their lives and our lives as carers.”
“Broader appreciation of haemophilia from medical and family prospective. Very positive for the future with ongoing improvements in management etc.”
