Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month spanned the entirety of October 2023, and saw individuals, families, Haemophilia Treatment Centres, Haemophilia Foundations and other organisations all helping to raise awareness about haemophilia, von Willebrand disease and other bleeding disorders around Australia.
The theme, Working together, was embraced fully as everyone came together in support of our bleeding disorders community.

Throughout the month we featured different personal stories from our community members. Read our story showcase here.
It was so great seeing everyone in the community getting together to help raise awareness. Information desks at HTCs, red dress days, walks, trivia nights and even a spooky halloween-themed bake sale! A big thank you to the state and territory Haemophilia Foundations for running events throughout the month. It was a wonderful opportunity for members to catch up and have a fun time out.
