are prominently observed in India amongst all the bleeding disorders. Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and Thalassemia got lot of attention in recent past from Govt. and Non-Govt. agencies for its diagnosis, management and rehabilitation etc. But the important third bleeding disorder i.e. Hemophilia is not getting proper attention from various Govt. and Non-Government agencies even our medical fraternity (doctors of various specialities) is not fully aware about the implications and sufferings of Hemophilic patients and hence we need to give more importance to the diagnosis, treatment, hereditary aspects and long term management of these patients with making Anti-hemophilia factors available in plenty at cheaper rates throughout our country. Some NGOs like Hemophilia Federation of India (H.F.I.) is doing a good job in mitigating all these aspects of Hemophilics to some extent, but their efforts are not sufficient to tackle the good number of Hemophilics, spread through nook and corners of our vast country with lot of illiteracy, poverty and lack of infrastructural facilities. We need further direct help from our Central Govt. and various State Governments to tackle the day-to-day problems faced by hemophilia patients.
