What We Do

Haemophilia Foundation Australian Capital Territory Incorporated (HFACT) is a non-profit organisation representing people, and their families, affected by haemophilia, von Willebrand's disorder and other rare bleeding disorders. HFACT operates in the ACT and the surrounding region of southern New South Wales.

The five main areas in which HFACT operates are:

Advocacy

Bringing haemophilia issues to the attention of governments, health-care professionals and the broader community, through education, advocacy and constructive representation.

Services

Striving for ready access to optimal health care for all persons with haemophilia, and related bleeding disorders, and paying due attention to any issues that may arise.

Networking

Ongoing interaction with government, hospitals and other agencies

Membership

Maintenance of an enthusiastic membership through provision of educational and social activities and other opportunities to share experiences.

Governance

Activities of the group are managed in an open and effective manner.

HFACT provides a range of opportunities for members to get together to share their experiences and learn about the latest developments in treatment and care.

HFACT also provides members with the services of a counsellor who is available to attend to any problems or issues that may arise. This service is provided through funding from ACT Health under the Public Health Outcomes Funding Agreement.
