Volunteers are the backbone of our organization—their contributions help drive us towards our vision of Treatment for All. Whether by sharing their knowledge, time, or passion, these individuals are instrumental in our efforts to improve access to treatment and care for people with bleeding disorders around the world. Now is the time to honour their commitment.
Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the local or global bleeding disorders community? The WFH is now accepting nominations for the following 2022 WFH Volunteer Awards.
