“Reaching Out To The Community”

In conjunction with the 30th World Hemophilia Day (WHD) the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) is proud to announce it has been selected as the ‘venue of choice’ to host the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) 2020 World Congress.

The Centre also 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 for the bleeding disorders community via its social media and other communication channels. According to the Centre’s General Manager, Alan Pryor, “We are honoured to have won this prestigious event and 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.”

To celebrate WHD – themed “Reaching Out: Connect To Your Community”, HSM organised a Fun Walk at the Riverwalk-Kongsi Square in Ipoh, Perak on 14 April 2019 from 7.00am to 3.00pm.
