Every year on 17 April World Haemophilia Day is recognised worldwide to increase awareness of haemophilia, von Willebrand disease and other inherited bleeding disorders. This is a critical effort since with increased awareness comes better diagnosis and access to care for the millions who remain without treatment.
17 April 17 2020 is the 30th anniversary of World Haemophilia Day! The longevity of this celebration is proof of the dedication and tight-knit nature of our community.
The theme of World Haemophilia Day in 2020 is Get+involved. Whether you are a person with a bleeding disorder, a family member or caregiver, a corporate partner, a volunteer, or a healthcare provider, we want to encourage you to help increase the awareness of inherited bleeding disorders and the need to make access to adequate care possible everywhere in the world.
Landmarks and monuments in Australia and around the world will support World Haemophilia Day by changing their lighting red on 17 April 2020.
Show your support on the night, and post photos on our Facebook page of you and your friends at the landmark. #WHD2020
Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for a list of locations that will be supporting the day. We have some new and old places, and a location in every state/territory. We would love you to share your photos and pictures on the day.
