“Through this project we have developed the seven brochures for healthcare professionals, patients and their families on various topics, such as ‘What is haemophilia’ and ‘If your child has haemophilia’. This is because it is difficult to find literature on haemophilia in the Ukrainian language and our doctors as well as patients need to have access to more information about bleeding disorders,” Dr Moroz.
