• World Hemophilia Day is celebrated every year on April 17th to honor the birth anniversary of Frank Schnabel, who established the World Federation of Hemophilia.
  • The theme for World Hemophilia Day in 2023 is “Access for All: Partnership, Policy, Progress – Engaging Governments to Integrate Inherited Bleeding Disorders into National Policy”.

About Hemophilia

  • Hemophilia is an uncommon medical condition where the blood is incapable of clotting correctly because of a shortage of specific clotting factors.
  • This leads to prolonged bleeding, which can pose a life-threatening risk in some cases.
  • Although there is no known cure for this disorder, available treatments can help control and manage the condition.

Hemophilia can either be present from birth (congenital) or develop later in life (acquired).
