Jesper Brandgaard has announced to the Novo Nordisk Haemophilia Foundation Council that, after three years of service, he has decided to step down as NNHF Council President, with immediate effect.

“During the past three years, while serving first as a member of the NNHF Council and then as Council President, I have seen amazing progress and I am truly proud of the achievements we have made together with our partners. I am convinced that the upcoming years will be exciting and likely to bring further improvements in care for people with haemophilia in developing countries,” stated Jesper Brandgaard.

The NNHF Council and Management team are grateful to Jesper Brandgaard for his guidance and contributions, especially in leading the transformation of NNHF into an even more global and agile organisation, expanding its support to people with bleeding disorders.
