Treatment for haemophilia today is very effective. The missing clotting factor is injected into the bloodstream using a needle. Bleeding stops when enough clotting factor reaches the spot that is bleeding.
Bleeding should be treated as quickly as possible. Quick treatment will help reduce pain and damage to the joints, muscles, and organs. If bleeding is treated quickly, less blood product is needed to stop the bleeding.
With an adequate quantity of treatment products and proper care, people with haemophilia can live perfectly healthy lives.
Without treatment, most children with severe haemophilia will die young.
An estimated 400,000 people worldwide are living with haemophilia and only 25% receive adequate treatment.
