April 17, 2020 is World Hemophilia Day. It’s a very important day for the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) and the bleeding disorders community—but nothing is more important to us than your health and wellbeing. The WFH wants to ensure that everyone celebrates the big day in a way that is sensitive to the risks of the current global novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Below are some recommendations on how you can “Get+involved” on April 17 in a way that is safe for you, your family, and your community. We’re in this together, so here’s how we can celebrate together in the name of “Treatment for All”.
Celebrate with the community virtually!
Celebrating with friends and family has always been a big part of World Hemophilia Day, but this year, stay home and use your internet-connected device to Get+involved:
If you have any questions about the best way to stay safe on World Hemophilia Day, feel free to contact Erika Laincy, WFH Marketing & Communications Manager, at [email protected].
As a final note, the WFH would like to thank the healthcare workers who are on the front lines in the battle against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Their dedication is admirable, and inspirational.
On behalf of everyone at the WFH, have a happy and safe World Hemophilia Day.
