WORLD HEMOPHILIA DAY-2015 [PHPWS-NMO] (2015-04-17)
World Hemophilia Day was observed with more enthusiasm and eagerness as compared to the previous years. It is celebrated to create awareness amongst society regarding Hemophilia and other Inherited Bleeding Disorders. This year, the event focused to encourage and motivate the bleeding disorder community on the theme of: "Get active for haemophilia: Picture the future" Pakistan Hemophilia Patients Welfare Society® [PHPWS] organized a national level celebration of World Hemophilia Day-2015 at Islamabad. The large number of patients in Pakistan on this World Hemophilia Day-2015 were taken to hiking camp on Margalla Hills in support of this year’s theme as it involves teamwork. On the hiking trail, several flag points were established where the patients were given different briefings/informative sessions with regards to their disease. This is a critical effort with an ultimate goal of ensuring better diagnosis and access to care for the millions who have a rare bleeding disorder yet remain without treatment.
