As well as supporting the 30th World Hemophilia Day (WHD, 17 April) Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) has announced it has been selected to host the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) 2020 World Congress.
KLCC supported WHD by hosting a blood donation drive and highlighting the importance of the work WFH and national associations, including the Hemophilia Society of Malaysia (HSM), are doing.
KLCC General Manager, Alan Pryor said: “We are excited to be partnering with WFH to make this important congress as successful as possible. We are delighted to support WHD and commend both WFH and HSM on their efforts to increase awareness of hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders, as this helps improve diagnosis and access to care for the millions who remain without treatment.”
WFH Director, Congress & Meetings, Jeremias Rodriguez added: “We are excited to say that our congress will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The city was selected for many reasons including the fact that it is an exciting business centre and has a well-earned reputation as being a welcoming and friendly city. English is also widely spoken in Kuala Lumpur, which will make it easy for our delegates to get around and enjoy the local culture.”
