“It was absolutely essential that we create a National Registry for people with bleeding disorders here in Algeria. Without the accurate picture of our starting point, how could we begin to improve? Now we can be sure that we have left a sustainable legacy that will improve access to care for all people with bleeding disorders in this country as we have consistent and up-to-date data for the dialogue with the authorities,” Prof Meriem Belhani, project partner
