Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week 2021

Sun 10 Oct - Sat 16 Oct

Bleeding Disorders Awareness Week is an opportunity for individuals and families as well as Haemophilia Foundations and other organisations to take part in a campaign and activities to raise awareness about haemophilia, von Willebrand disease and related inherited bleeding disorders throughout Australia.

What a different year it is going to be – with COVID-19 restrictions different in each state/territory and the unknown we have decided to develop a virtual campaign. This will involve many fun things that all ages can get involved in.  Keep an eye on the events page and our social networks. 

The theme of the week is One Community, Many Faces. We will showcase our community and highlight the many different bleeding disorders and experiences. Do you want to share your story?
