The European Association for Haemophilia and Allied Disorders is a recently established independent association of healthcare professionals which grew out of the activities of the European Interdisciplinary Working Group (IDWG).
The Aims of the Association were set out as follows:
to recognise, measure and address the problems of people with haemophilia and allied disorders in Europe, to protect their interests and to ensure the provision of the highest quality of care available.
to advance the education of medical practitioners, clinical scientists, professions allied to medicine and the general public in the knowledge of haemophilia and allied disorders and their treatment.
to promote scientific research and audit into the causes, prevention, alleviation and management of haemophilia and allied disorders and to disseminate the useful results of such research.
