It was with great sadness that the EHC decided to cancel the 2020 Conference on Women and Bleeding Disorders. We are hoping to be able to hold again this event in 2021. In the meantime, we decided to maintain some of the conference elements and to bring you two webinars on the management of heavy menstrual bleeding, and the place of women in haemophilia comprehensive care. Here below you will find more details and we hope that many of you will be able to join us!

Thursday 28 May from 13.00 to 14.30 hrs CEST
