EHC celebrates World Haemophilia Day

Speakers and EHC staff at the Paul Ehrlich Institut

On 17 April, the haemophilia community around the world celebrates World Haemophilia Day, an international observance commemorating the birth date of Frank Schnabel, the World Federation of Hemophilia's first president.

This year the European Haemophilia Consortium celebrated this commemoration a day earlier (on 16 April) with an event at the Paul Ehrlich Institut in Langen, Germany to present the Council of Europe's Directorate for Quality of Medicines and Healthcare (EDQM) recommendations setting the minimum standards of care for people with haemophilia in Europe.

The recommendations were the result of a two-day scientific meeting held in Wild Bad Kreuth in 2013 where patients' representatives, leading physicians and regulators came together to discuss the optimal use of coagulation factors.

The presentations of the event can be consulted here.

These recommendations have been published in the scientific journal "Haemophilia".

Please join us in raising awareness for people living with haemophilia!

EHC Celebrates its 25th Anniversary

25 years to this day (April 7-9, 1989), in the wake of the contaminated blood scandals, patients' representatives from across Europe met in Noordwijk (the Netherlands) to discuss European collaboration. This is when the EHC was first created. We are proud of our accomplishments, which were made possible through the contribution of dedicated individuals that make up our membership. Come and celebrate with us this special anniversary during the EHC annual conference in Belfast!
Moreover, to commemorate this milestone, the EHC will run throughout the year a series of articles in its newsletter to look back at its experiences and to look ahead at its new priorities. Make sure not to miss them!
