About HSS Fundraising

There is no cure for haemophilia. A person born with haemophilia will have it for life.

Haemophilia is constantly rated amongst the top 10 most expensive medical conditions to treat in the world and the most pressing need that haemophilia patients face, is the ability to afford medication to control bleeding.

A small bruise on the patient's ankle could require up to 6 bottles of Factor VIII/IX (medication) which costs slightly above $100 per bottle.

Patients with severe haemophilia may require regular infusion of the medication, because even a minor bump can cause uncontrolled bleeding.

The Red Dot fundraising drive was created by the Haemophilia Society of Singapore, to enable subsidized treatment, ensuring that the nation's haemophilia patients have access to affordable and safe treatment in managing the condition.

What is haemophilia?

Haemophilia is a rare genetic bleeding disorder that affects the blood's ability to clot. Whilst most people stop bleeding after a while from a minor cut, people affected with haemophilia bleed longer than usual due to the absence of clotting factors which control the bleeding.

There is also the danger of internal bleeding which causes bruising and damage to the joints and muscles. This means that a small cut or knock can be serious for haemophilia patients. Read more

Treatment for haemophilia

There is no cure for haemophilia but treatments are available to help a person affected by the condition to control bleeding by infusing factor VII and IX concentrates as clotting factor replacements.

A person with haemophilia will have it for life and they need your help to look forward to a normal life expectancy.
