World Hemophilia Day is an international observance that began in 1989 and is held annually on April 17 by the World Federation of Hemophilia. It is an awareness day for hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, which also serves to raise funds and attract volunteer.

Niagara Falls, the Peace Bridge between the United States and Canada as well as the Electric Tower in downtown Buffalo were illuminated in red lights on Monday, April 17th in observance of World Hemophilia Day 2017.

The World Federation of Hemophilia would like to thank our amazing community that made World Hemophilia Day a truly global event, helping raise awareness for women and girls affected by bleeding disorders. A huge thank you to all who organized a landmark being Lit Up in Red. We are thrilled to say that 69 landmarks participated this year.
