The Society of Haemophilia and Allied Disorders with support from Novo Nordisk Haemophilia Foundation, Haemophilia Scotland and the Ministry of Health is pleased to announce the opening of its first Haemophilia Clinic in Malawi.

Please provide your name or that of your child by sms to 0994969108 or 0881405108 if you suspect that you have haemophilia or if you know anyone who may have haemophilia so that they can be invited to Lilongwe for laboratory testing on 11th November 2016.
