The World Federation of Hemophilia has published the third edition of Guidelines for the Management of Hemophilia. Developed through a formal evidence-informed and consensus-based methodology involving multidisciplinary healthcare professionals (HCPs) and well-informed people with hemophilia (PWH), these guidelines offer 340 practical recommendations on managing care for PWH. The guidance provides a framework for the development of a comprehensive healthcare system supporting PWH, including advocacy and patient empowerment.
