WFH 2020 World Congress - HFACT Grant ** Withdrawn **
Wednesday, 4 March 2020
On 24 March 2020 the World Federation of Hemophilia announced the cancellation of the 2020 World Congress in Kuala Lumpur after the Malaysian Government requested all such meetings be postponed until at least 30 June 2020. The full statement can be found online here. Clearly HFACT will no longer be sponsoring an attendee. A decision on what to do with the available funding will be made once the situation becomes clearer.
The HFACT Committee has funds available to sponsor a community attendee to the 2020 World Congress in Kuala Lumpur. The amount of $2,500 is available from HFACT fundraising activities and the donation from the Stever family (2018) for conference attendance and education activities. This will not cover the full cost of attendance but should cover a large proportion.
To be eligible you must be a financial member of HFACT (check with the Treasurer – [email protected] – if you are unsure of your status).
Expressions of interest should be emailed to the Secretary – [email protected] – by 10th April 2020. You should include your reasons for wanting to attend, how it will benefit you and the HFACT community. It will strengthen your case if you show how you have (or will) participate with HFACT. The successful applicant will be expected to provide an article about their experience at the congress for the HFACT newsletter ACTIVATED and / or a presentation about the congress to HFACT members at a social event.
