World Haemophilia Day 2023
April 17, 2023 is World Hemophilia Day. The theme of the event this year is “Access for All: Prevention of bleeds as the global standard of care”. Building on last year’s theme, the call to action for the community in 2023 is to come together and advocate with local policy makers and governments for improved access to treatment and care with an emphasis on better control and prevention of bleeds for all people with bleeding disorders (PWBDs). This means the implementation of home-based treatment as well as prophylactic treatment to help those individuals have a better quality of life.
At HHFT Basingstoke our team will be taking to the wards across the hospital site, wearing red and talking to as many members of staff and patients as possible to provide information and answer questions about Haemophilia and Bleeding Disorders.
You can find out more about the work of the Home – WFH – World Federation of Hemophilia on their website.
