Hemophilia awareness seminar on April 17.

SUKKUR: World Hemophilia Day will be observed on April 17 in Sukkur to advocate a global

effort to ensure appropriate care and treatment for a disease that is the oldest

known genetic bleeding disorder caused by a deficiency in the genes.

In this connection, the Inter Global Human Development Society in

collaboration with the health department has planned an awareness

seminar at a hotel, said a news release issued here on Tuesday.

Hemophilia generally transmits at birth from an affected father

to daughter, who then becomes a carrier of the hemophilia cells who

is at higher risk of passing the defective gene on to her children.

The disease is not curable, but with proper knowledge and treatment

it can be handled.

World Hemophilia Day is targeted to stepping up

awareness of hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.
