The World Federation of Hemophilia 2018 World Congress was held in Glasgow, Scotland from 20-24 May 2018.

The WFH World Congress is the largest international meeting for the global bleeding disorders community, and in 2018 brought together approximately 5,000 delegates from around 130 countries. Health professionals, researchers, scientists, government and industry representatives, national haemophilia organisation leaders and members of the bleeding disorders community met to learn, share, and problem-solve.

The Congress program provided an innovative and comprehensive overview on the latest developments, current healthcare issues, and the challenges ahead in the management and treatment of people with haemophilia, von Willebrand disease, rare clotting factor deficiencies, and inherited platelet disorders worldwide.

In this special Congress feature, Gavin Finkelstein, HFA President and some of the HFA staff and haemophilia health professionals who attended give a snapshot of some key sessions in their interest areas.
