The European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) is launching today, 18 October 2019, a call for volunteers to join its Women and Bleeding Disorders (WBD) Committee and its Inhibitor Working Group (IWG). Volunteers will be expected to start in January 2020 for three years (until end 2022).

These committees have been established to create awareness, recognition, support and education about, and for, women with bleeding disorders and people with bleeding disorders suffering from inhibitors, respectively. These committees will help EHC develop strategies and activities to achieve these goals.

The ideal candidates will have prior experience either within their national member organisation or at an international level. They will also need to express their commitment to the activities of these committees for the entire duration of their mandate. The working language of these groups is English.

To apply candidates will need to submit their CVs, a letter of motivation and a letter of recommendation from the President of their affiliated National Member Organisation (NMO) by 24 November 2019 midnight (CET). The applications will be reviewed by the EHC Steering Committee in early December and applicants should expect to be contacted by mid-December with final decisions on the selection process.

For any further information on these applications, please get in touch with Laura Savini regarding applications for the WBD Committee and Kristine Jansone for the IWG.
