Former WFH Director Dies at 63

Line Robillard, former executive director of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH), died October 25, 2006 in Montreal, Canada, of cancer. She was the founding executive director of the National Alliance for Thrombosis and Thrombophilia (NATT).


During her tenure at the WFH, from 1994-2003, Robillard strongly contributed to the development of the multidisciplinary training programs and global data collection and surveillance of blood product safety and supply issues. She helped develop the WFH model for hemophilia care based on integrating it into a country’s national healthcare system. During her last year at the WFH, Robillard initiated the Global Alliance for Progress, expanding the work of the organization into developing countries.


Robillard helped establish NATT, a patient-based, nonprofit organization promoting research, education and advocacy for people with blood clots, in Washington, DC. She served as its executive director from August 2003 until December 2005. She coordinated the first series of patient education seminars, building rapport with industry.
