Sunday 17 April 2016 is World Haemophilia Day. It is marked worldwide, with the goal of increasing awareness of haemophilia 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.
On World Haemophilia Day we will highlight the need for treatment for all people with a bleeding disorder worldwide and how this goal will only be obtained with the help of the community at large. Treatment for All is the vision of all haemophilia organisations but we can only achieve it together.
Globally 1 in 1000 people has a bleeding disorder.
Most are not diagnosed and do not receive treatment.
CONNECT FOR TREATMENT FOR ALL
Connected, we can achieve more. Join us on April 17th to raise awareness about bleeding disorders.
Visit the World Haemophilia Day website and add your voice to the international community by sharing a photo, a story, or your thoughts on how we can obtain Treatment for All.
And be in the social media conversation with #WHD2016 !
LIGHT IT UP RED!
To mark the occasion, landmarks across the world will turn their lights red in support. In Australia these landmarks will turn red on the night:
- AAMI Park, Melbourne
- The Bell Tower, Perth
- Storey Bridge, Brisbane
