World Hemophilia Day: April 17

April 17th is “World Hemophilia Day”.

This day is the birthday of “Frank Schnabel”, the founder of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH).

The World Federation of Hemophilia is a non-profit organization primarily aimed at improving the lives of hemophiliacs and was founded in 1963 in Montreal, Canada.

Patients with hemophilia are naturally deficient in the substances that coagulate blood in the blood, so it takes a longer time to stop bleeding.
