Last week, the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) received the largest humanitarian aid donation in its history, thanks to the generosity of Wyeth, now a part of Pfizer. The donation of more than 40 million international units of factor concentrate to WFH’s Humanitarian Aid Program will help bring life-saving treatments to people with hemophilia worldwide, especially those who have little to no access to adequate treatment. The donation will go to WFH’s Twinning Program and to support adults and children, and those with life-threatening bleeds.
“This donation will directly support building sustainable national care programs for people with bleeding disorders,” said Mark Skinner, WFH president. “We are very proud to work with Wyeth [now a part of Pfizer], which has historically been the largest single donor of hemophilia products to the WFH.”
