The Mexico 3 project team developed the "Mi hemofilia" app for iOS and Android. The app provides useful information about haemophilia and guides children on how to exercise at home.
Additionally, the project team, lead by Dr Io Daiela Castillo and
her team from the Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez (HIMFG)
in collaboration with the Instituto Nacional de Pediatría (INP) of
Mexico City, produced comprehensive educational material for children
with haemophilia: a manual, an exercice guide, a haemophilia ID card
and a school booklet.
All the material developped by the Mexico 3 project team is available for download here below. If you find it useful and wish to use it in your country we kindly ask you to mention the source as follows: "Material developed as part of the NNHF Mexico 3 project with the support of Novo Nordisk Haemophilia Foundation".
