From the identification of haemophilia in the 1940s , through to the present day, incredible strides have been made in the understanding and treatment of the disease. However medical research and innovation is only one part of the story: the everyday impact on patients, as well as their loved ones and caregivers must be recognised for us to truly understand the bigger picture.
With the launch of our Portraits of Progress campaign across Europe, we are amplifying the voices of the haemophilia community, while celebrating how far we’ve come in our knowledge and treatment of the disease.
The campaign, which is fronted by powerful portraits of patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals captured by world-renowned photographer, Rankin, now has a newly launched European website showcasing patient stories through photos and videos.
