World Hemophilia Day is held on April 17 by the World Federation of Hemophilia “WFH”. It is an awareness day for hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, which serves to educate people and raise awareness of the health problems caused by this type of disease. Also, it serves to raise funds to support research and scientific events and attract volunteers for the World Federation for Hemophilia particularly to care for people in need.
This awareness day was started in 1989 and April 17 was chosen in honor of Frank Schnabel’s birthday who founded the World Federation for Hemophilia in 1963.
