European Haemophilia Consortium releases movie about women and bleeding disorders

The European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) has released a new film to raise awareness about the experiences of women with a bleeding disorder.

Directed by Goran Kapetanović, the 43-minute movie features personal accounts from women living with a bleeding disorder who describe the impact of their condition on childhood, relationships, daily life and their decisions about having children. The movie is subtitled in English; a script and translations are available from EHC (www.ehc.eu). EHC hopes the movie will be shared globally and used for advocacy and education.

The movie was made in cooperation with the EHC’s Women and Bleeding Disorders Committee and medical and scientific advisory groups; Takeda provided financial support.
