World Haemophilia Day poster

On 17 April World Haemophilia Day is recognised globally to increase awareness of haemophilia and
other inherited bleeding disorders.

The theme for World Haemophilia Day 2018 is ‘Sharing Knowledge Makes Us Stronger’. It’s about sharing experiences of bleeding disorders with the world in order to improve awareness and increase access to treatment.
