Your Health! Your Fight! Your Voice!

This is your opportunity to join others from the bleeding disorders community in Washington, DC, to tell elected officials in Congress about the issues that affect you and your family.

The Issues

  • Designation of March as Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month and the Red Tie Challenge
    In recent years, many great strides have been made by our community in the areas of treatment, public policy and advocacy. What's been missing has been a unifying activity that embraces ALL members of our community, and encourages and emboldens us to stand up and be noticed alongside other chronic diseases. Learn more and help us launch the Red Tie Challenge in support of Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month. No better place to start than Washington Days!
  • Funding for federal hemophilia program
    The entire bleeding disorders community has greatly benefited from the federal hemophilia programs and initiatives supported by the various agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services. Programs supporting hemophilia treatment center (HTC) services, blood safety and surveillance, inhibitor prevention and research for better treatments and a cure--all are critical components of our Washington Days agenda.

NHF's public policy team is working on a potential third issue that will be announced soon along with the proposed meeting agenda.
