World Haemophilia Day

View Related Stories Q & A News And More…

Every year on 17 April World Haemophilia Day is recognised worldwide to increase awareness of haemophilia, von Willebrand disease 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.

Light it Up Red!  

We have seen amazing participation by both our community and partners over the past three years. We have grown the Light it Up Red! initiative to include more than 40 landmarks around the world lit in red for World Hemophilia Day. Help raise awareness in your community by contacting a landmark and lighting it up red for April 17!
