On 9-11 September 2016 the European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) held its first EHC Workshop on Tenders and Procurement. The event was held in Baku, Azerbaijan and was aimed at EHC Members from outside the EU. The event was attended by some 20 participants from Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Montenegro and Ukraine. Participants took part to a mix of theoretical lectures and practical exercises.

The objective of the workshop was to provide patients with technical and practical knowledge and know-how to become more involved in their national tenders on coagulation factors concentrates.

The next edition of the EHC Tenders and Procurement Workshop will take place on 15-17 September 2017 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

This workshop was made possible by an educational grant from Pfizer.
