Building impact through awareness and outreach

Fewer than 80 cases of haemophilia had been documented in Mozambique when the national patient organisation first submitted its application for a two-and-a- half year project to improve knowledge and management of bleeding disorders. Access to care in the country is currently centred around the capital Maputo, located at the southern tip of Mozambique on the Indian ocean coast of Africa.
