The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) World Congress will be making its way to Malaysia in 2024 after an uneventful 2020 cancellation due to the pandemic.
The congress will bring the world best’s professionals in hemophilia to Malaysia for the first time to provide local healthcare professionals with opportunities to network, collaborate, share best practices among industry experts and finding solutions to save human lives.
WFH has a global network of patient organisations in 122 countries and has official recognition from the World Health Organisation.
According to Jeremias Rodriguez, director – congress & meetings for World Federation of Hemophilia, the congress is returning to South-east Asia after a 20-year gap.
The announcement of this event is the first step towards restoring confidence in the nation’s ability to hold in-person events.
According to Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau’s CEO Abdul Khani Daud: “Supporting a health-focused congress such as the World Federation of Hemophilia is especially crucial during the Covid-19 crisis whereby it has made life challenging for people with a bleeding disorder. Unlike many medical congresses, this Congress is unique because it is attended by patients as well as medical experts, researchers, scientist and regulators. It acts as a platform for patients with bleeding disorders to gain new information from the medical aspect and learn about latest developments that could assist them in their daily lives.”
