World Haemophilia Day
17 April is World Haemophilia Day. This day is celebrated by haemophilia organisations around the world, and gives them an opportunity to increase awareness of haemophilia.
World Haemophilia Day was started in 1989. The World Federation of Haemophilia (WHF) chose 17 April in honour of WFH founder Frank Schnabel, who was born on that day.
It is a day for us to remember and reflect on the contributions of people like Frank Schnabel who have dedicated themselves to improving care for people with haemophilia. It is also a time for us to re-commit ourselves to continuing the fight to improve the quality of life of people with haemophilia around the world.
