About World Hemophilia Day

Since 1989, patient groups worldwide have annually celebrated World Hemophilia Day (WHD) on 17 April to raise awareness and understanding of hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. The date was chosen in honour of World Federation of Hemophilia founder Frank Schnabel, who was born on that day.

On WHD, Novo Nordisk together with patient groups around the world organise awareness-raising campaigns, media events and a variety of activities to educate people with hemophilia and the general public about bleeding disorders and emphasise the importance of proper care.
