The European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) wishes to inform its community that, due to the Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic, the EHC has decided to CANCEL its April events, namely the Youth Leadership Workshop (Amsterdam, April 3-5) and World Haemophilia Day (Brussels, April 24). Alternative arrangements are currently being planned; stay tuned to the EHC communication channels for more information soon.

For May and June events, the EHC continue to monitor and evaluate the situation in Europe. Regarding the Round Table of Stakeholders (Brussels, 19 May), the Women and Bleeding Disorders Conference (Basel, 29-31 May) and the Leadership Conference (Brussels, 25-28 June), the EHC kindly requests its community to uphold a spending embargo until further notice (e.g. hold off on making any new travel or accommodation arrangements related to upcoming EHC events that incur financial obligations). An update on these events will be provided via the EHC communication channels soon.

The EHC is also working together with its Medical Advisory Group (MAG) and closely following European risk-assessment deliberations and shall update its position statement soon.
