Professional Perspectives

Often, hemophilia is thought of as a condition that only impacts males. Over the past several years, however, the topic of women with hemophilia has been receiving more attention in the medical community. This site is intended to be a home for education and resources that shine light on a segment of the community that historically has been underserved. From patients and caregivers to health care providers, the female perspective can be found here.

Women have been involved in Pfizer’s B2B Advisory Board for over 15 years and have endorsed and helped shape many of these resources. We aim to continue to listen to and elevate the voices of females in the hemophilia community.

We hope this page helps build awareness, understanding, and acceptance of women in the hemophilia community.
