Introduction

World Through My Eyes commemorates World Haemophilia Day on 17 April 2016. Haemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder that affects the blood's ability to clot and affects approximately 1 in 12,000 people. People with haemophilia do not have enough clotting factor VIII (haemophilia A) or IX (haemophilia B) in their blood which inhibits the clotting process. As a result, people with haemophilia can bleed for longer than normal, and some may experience spontaneous bleeding into joints, muscles, or other parts of their bodies.
