The European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) has 45 National Member Organisations (NMOs) from 27 Member States of the European Union (EU) and most Member States of the Council of Europe.
The EHC’s members vary greatly. The population of our largest member is 440 times larger than that of our smallest. The per capita income of our wealthiest member country is 69 times that of our poorest. The diversity in European countries also means a great diversity in levels of treatment and care. Our members have a wide range of access to treatment and care. By working together and sharing our experiences, knowledge and ideas we become more effective.
Our organisation is open to all European patient organisation related to bleeding disorders that are members of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) and that belong to the region of Europe, as defined by the World Health Organisation Europe. Also, we only accept one patient organisation per country.
During the General Assembly meeting of 2014, the public association “Community of handicapped – Haemophiliacs” from the Kyrgyz Republic was accepted as the 45th member of the EHC.
