The World Hemophilia Day 2015 was marked in Hanoi on April 11 following a meeting organised by the Vietnam Hemophilia Association (VHA) in collaboration with the National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion.

The World Hemophilia Day 2015 was organised to raise awareness about bleeding disorder and the need to build a family of support for those living with it.

According to Nguyen Anh Tri, VHA Chairman, people living with hemophilia can have a stable life and make contributions to society if they are diagnosed and treated early along with the help from the community.

Vietnam currently have around 6,000 hemophilia patients and only 40 percent of them are discovered and treated on a regular basis, Tri said.

There is significant progress in treating the hemophilia in Vietnam thanks to improved diagnose and treatment quality, he added.-VNA
