The Alaska Hemophilia Association’s purpose is to inform and educate the public about hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders and to provide educational and support services for Alaskans living with hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders. The Alaska Hemophilia Association was founded in 1991 to provide urgently needed advocacy for the bleeding disorder patients and their families in Alaska and to address the unique challenges of living with a bleeding disorder in Alaska. Now AHA’s main goals are to educate families and the community about bleeding disorders, advocate for the best care for patients, and provide support for both individuals and their families.
Alaska Bleeding Disorder Clinics is the only federally recognized Hemophilia Treatment Center in Alaska. The Hemophilia Treatment Center in Alaska has long had a reputation for its outstanding relationship with the local bleeding disorder community and with the local patient advocacy group, Alaska Hemophilia Association AHA. Many of the core board members of AHA were heavily involved in the creation of this clinic and the expectation is that most patients in the Alaskan bleeding disorder community will choose to receive their bleeding disorder care at our new clinic, being well aware of the great benefits of being cared for in a Hemophilia Treatment Center.
