World Hemophilia Day Date in the current year: April 17, 2016

World Hemophilia Day April 17 is World Hemophilia Day. This international observance was created to raise public awareness of people suffering hemophilia (another spelling is haemophilia) and other bleeding disorders.

World Hemophilia Day is observed by many countries around the globe since 1989, when it was established by the World Federation of Hemophilia. The date for observance was chosen April 17, since it's the birthday of Frank Schnabel, the founder of the Federation.

Annual observance of World Hemophilia Day has it's own theme. The theme should be always taken into account for organization of various events. The theme of annual celebration is focusing on problem, that is connected to hemophilia.

Due to efforts taken by doctors and scientists hemophilia is no longer a deadly disease. But this shouldn't stop us from searching for new and more effective ways of treatment of this disease. The World Federation of Hemophilia reminds us about it on World Hemophilia Day.
