Brazil 4: Bringing haemophilia care closer to home

05 December 2018

In 2015, in the state of Pará access to haemophilia care was available only in the state capital city of Belem. People with inherited bleeding disorders had to travel long distances, often by boat, taking many hours to reach care. In addition, people with haemophilia and their families living outside the capital city often lacked the adequate information to manage the condition.


New projects approved

22 November 2018

13 new projects have been approved by the NNHF Council at its last meeting on 15 November. We look forward to collaborating with our new partners as well as continuing the journey with existing ones to improve access to care for people with haemophilia.


Argentina 3: Planting the seeds of progress

21 June 2018

Buenos Aires has well-established haemophilia care where people with bleeding disorders are able to flourish. But Jujuy presented a very different landscape. In the province of Jujuy, people with haemophilia were often completely isolated from care. In many cases, they had not even been properly diagnosed and were living in an environment without any resources or support.


Argentina 2: The art of better care

19 June 2018

The project began with Doctor Susana Garbiero putting together a dedicated team of physicians, nurses, physiotherapists and social workers. They set out to further develop better care for people with haemophilia across the region of Southern Buenos Aires province.


Myanmar 3: Expanding care in Northern Myanmar

11 June 2018

Myo Aung has severe haemophilia A with inhibitors. He started using crutches three years ago, aged 32, due to joint damage in both knees caused by repeated bleedings. The haematology unit, led by Mandalay’s only haematologist Dr Moe Hein, is located on the first floor of the hospital. There is no lift.
