Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week

Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week

Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week is an opportunity for individuals and families as well as Haemophilia Foundations and other organisations to take part in a campaign and activities to raise awareness about haemophilia, von Willebrand disease and related inherited bleeding disorders throughout Australia during the week of 7- 13 October 2018.   

This year the theme is Living life to the full.

What does living life to the full mean to you? Look out for the personal stories from the bleeding disorders community that we will publish during Awareness Week. We invite you to share these stories with other people you know: it’s through sharing personal experiences that we can connect and increase understanding in the wider community.
