The WFH Humanitarian Aid Program aims to improve the lack of access to care and treatment for people with inherited bleeding disorders in developing countries, and is a critically important endeavour for the bleeding disorders community. This month, the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) and WFH USA are proud to celebrate the one year anniversary of Bayer joining the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program.
The commitment of Bayer consists of a five-year partnership that will contribute additional Factor VIII treatments to people living with hemophilia A in over 60 countries where the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program is working to help people with little to no access to care. In 2019, Bayer donated 50 million IUs of treatment through the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program—and the company will be building on this accomplishment in the coming years.
“The WFH Humanitarian Aid Program helps fulfill an urgent and important public health challenge and its efforts would not be possible without the support of companies such as Bayer,” said Alain Weill, President, World Federation of Hemophilia.
