Project highlights

Expanding haemophilia diagnosis and care beyond the capital city to include the north of the country was the key focus of the third NNHF project in Uruguay. This was achieved by providing healthcare professionals and people with haemophilia in northern Uruguay with the required diagnosis capacity and training for dedicated haemophilia care.
