Guidelines for the management of haemophilia in Australia

The Australian Haemophilia Centre Director’s Organisation (AHCDO) in collaboration with the National Blood Authority (NBA) has developed a guideline for the management of patients with haemophilia.

The NBA and AHCDO agreed that the World Federation of Hemophilia’s Guidelines for the management of hemophilia (2nd edition) provided a sound basis upon which to develop Australian guidance. However, in order to maximise the opportunity of standardising haemophilia care in Australia, some adaptation of the WFH guideline has been undertaken.
