 Mail

Overview

Started in 1983, Haemophilia Federation India (HFI) is the only national umbrella organization in India working for the welfare of the Persons with Haemophilia (PwH) through a network of several chapters spread over four regions. Their aim is to reach out to PwH and provide total quality care, education, make treatment available at affordable cost, psycho-social support, and economic rehabilitation and thus help them in improving the quality of life without disability and free of pain.

The Basics

Several people and children suffering from haemophilia belong to Below Poverty Line (BPL) families. Due to the lifelong, incurable nature and very expensive management of the disorder Anti Hemophilic Factor (AHF), it becomes difficult for families to meet expenses of the same. Most men from such families are factory-workers, daily wage earners, rickshaw pullers, vegetable vendors, or they are engaged as household help in neighbouring apartments.

How It Works

• The requirement for AHF can be even more in case of severe bleeding and surgeries.
• Besides, this is not a one-time expenditure as a person may injure himself/herself a couple of times in a month.
• Most haemophilics are thus not able to get timely, sufficient and appropriate treatment, which eventually has consequences such as disability, death, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B/C infections, and even stress due to financial constraints.
• Haemophilia Foundation maintains a list of the most deserving patients.
• This is based on the severity of the condition as well as family income. AHF is then allocated to beneficiaries as and when required.
• A second installment is given only after receiving satisfactory proof that the first installment of AHF was properly utilized.
• In case of death of a current beneficiary or underutilized medicine by another patient, a new beneficary is identified.

Statistics

• 3-4 times – Number of times in a month that a person with haemophilia may injure himself/herself
• 90% - Percentage of people and children suffering from haemophilia who belong to BPL families
• 500-1000 – Minimum number of units of AHF required by a haemophilic patient
• Rs. 10,000 – Cost of minimum number of units of AHF required by a haemophilic patient
• 12,500 – Number of people and children suffering from haemophilia who belong to BPL families
