2023 Conference

The 21st Australian Conference on haemophilia, von Willebrand disease & rare bleeding disorders will be held face to face at the Pullman on the Park hotel (see map below), Melbourne, 24-26 August 2023. The conference is hosted and organised by Haemophilia Foundation Australia (HFA).

After a few years communicating and running events, virtually and online, it will be wonderful to see everyone come together again and at a different time of year to our previous conferences.

HFA conferences bring together people with bleeding disorders and their families and carers, as well as health professionals, policy makers and industry. It is a great opportunity to learn, discuss and plan for the future.

The program committee is developing a multidisciplinary program which will interest everyone. Topics will cover:

  • new developments in care and treatment
  • inhibitors
  • new treatments
  • gene therapy
  • living with a bleeding disorder
  • getting older with a bleeding disorder
  • women/girls with bleeding disorders
  • family planning and genetics
  • von Willebrand disease
  • rarer bleeding disorders
  • managing pain
  • bloodborne viruses
  • new diagnosis
  • youth
  • sport and healthy activities
  • and………………what’s on the horizon?
