Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week

And Red Cake Day 2018

Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week and Red Cake Day was held this year from 7-13 October 2018. Haemophilia Foundation Australia and Haemophilia Foundations around the country worked together to raise awareness about bleeding disorders. 

Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week 2018

There was great interest in the week and we had many supporters to help us fundraise and raise awareness over the week.   Bendigo Bank branches in regional Victoria joined in partnership once again to raise awareness and funds; and schools, hospitals, libraries, families and local communities around the country received promotional materials to help them run their own activities.


A newsletter highlighting all the events held during the week will be distributed to participants soon and will be available on the HFA web site.  If you wish to receive a copy please email Natashia at  

Thank you to everyone who participated in Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week and Red Cake Day activities!
