The EHC’s #thisway campaign aims to promote physical and mental health and wellbeing through a range of initiatives, such as sharing patient stories, facilitating physical activity challenges, and hosting walking tours during EHC Conferences, among others.

  • Patient stories: the EHC consistently conducts interviews and gathers patient narratives to enhance understanding of the experience of individuals living with a rare bleeding disorder, as well as to provide insights into the caregiver perspective on the impact of such disorders on quality of life. Many of these patient accounts serve to inspire fellow patients to overcome challenges related to both physical and mental well-being.
  • Physical activity challenges: the EHC frequently coordinates physical activity challenges within the community to foster motivation and incentivise participation, infusing elements of enjoyment and cultivating camaraderie. These endeavours are undertaken to enhance physical and mental well-being, strengthen community bonds, and increase awareness and advocacy. Next up: Join the #thisway spring challenge!
  • Physical activity grants: with the Physical Activity Grant (PAG), the EHC wants to support National Member Organisations (NMOs) in organising physio and physical activities. Read more on the Grants page (scroll down to find PAGs under Activity Grants!)
