On the occasion of the World Hemophilia Day 2023, the Caudan Arts Centre was lit up in red to bring attention to those affected by inherited bleeding disorders.
The theme of World Hemophilia Day this year is “Access for All: Prevention of bleeds as the global standard of care “. By raising awareness and bringing hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders to the attention of policymakers, we can increase sustainable and equitable access to care and treatment.
Light It Up Red is a campaign championed by the World Federation of Hemophilia, an international not-for-profit organization and global network of patient organizations in 147 countries.
The international bleeding disorders community has seen amazing participation over the past few years for the Light it Up Red! initiative. In 2022, over 125 major landmarks around the world participated—a record!
The Haemophilia Association of Mauritius, yearly, arranges for a landmark to be lit up in red.
