WFH 2024 World Congress Is Coming to Madrid

It will be the World Federation of Hemophilia’s first fully in-person conference since the pandemic.

The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) is happy to announce a return to a fully in-person of the WFH 2024 World Congress, which will be the year’s most comprehensive international event on bleeding disorders.

The Congress will be held April 21-24 in Madrid. The city’s vibrant energy, rich culture, and accessible location in Europe make it the perfect meeting place for the global bleeding disorders community.

Participants can expect to be treated to a warm welcome by La Federación Española de Hemofilia (Fedhemo), the Spanish WFH national member organization and the Congress host.

If you or a family member has a bleeding disorder, or if you’re a health care professional, researcher, policymaker, advocate, or industry member, the WFH 2024 World Congress is for you. The program will cover the latest developments and innovations in our field, from health care issues to the challenges ahead for the management and treatment of hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, rare factor deficiencies, and inherited platelet disorders. This aspect of the Congress — bringing the best and brightest in the field together in one place — is critical to fostering new ideas and approaches.

By attending the WFH 2024 World Congress, you will help the WFH continue to deliver the programs and events that are so critical to the community, especially in countries with limited resources. The Congress will bring together people from all specialties and interests, including patients, hematologists, pediatricians, orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, physiotherapists, dentists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, geneticists, laboratory technicians, researchers, scientists, policymakers, regulators, advocates, and industry members.

A Time to Connect

Everyone who takes part will have a special opportunity to network, collaborate, share knowledge, and problem-solve with like-minded colleagues from around the world. There will be many chances for participants to reconnect with old friends they might not have seen for years — and make new ones.

The Congress program will cover the latest medical and multidisciplinary developments. There will also be five professional track sessions in the fields of dentistry, laboratory sciences, musculoskeletal care, psychosocial care, and nursing. The progress of WFH programs will also be covered, including the WFH Path to Access to Care and Treatment (PACT) Program, the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program, the World Bleeding Disorders Registry (WBDR), the Gene Therapy Registry (GTR), and many other WFH initiatives. And, of course, a rich social calendar will help participants get the most out of their time in Madrid.

The Congress will take place in the IFEMA Madrid convention center, which is strategically located in the northeast of the city. The venue is easily accessible by taxi, and the Madrid airport is just five minutes away. The venue is also accessible for people with reduced mobility.
