YONGIN, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GC Pharma (formerly known as Green Cross Corporation), a South Korean biopharmaceutical company, participates in a campaign to celebrate World Hemophilia Day.
As part of GC Pharma’s continued support of the hemophilia community, the company features this year's slogan image on a giant exterior media façade of its main campus in Yongin, South Korea.
Started in 1989 by the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH), in honor of their founder Frank Schnabel’s birthday, World Hemophilia Day is celebrated each year on April 17th and intended to raise awareness of the disease and other bleeding disorders.
This year’s slogan is “Adapting to Change, sustaining care in a new world”. With this slogan, the global bleeding disorders community emphasizes the continuity of treatment for bleeding disorders, including haemophilia, in a world that has turned into Covid-19.
Hemophilia is a congenital disorder that causes longer-than-normal bleeding due to absent or deficient clotting factor in the blood. Hemophilia A is more common than hemophilia B; hemophilia A affects about 150,000 people, whereas hemophilia B affects about 30,000 people worldwide. Treatment regimens typically include on-demand and/or regular prophylactic infusions of factor replacement therapy to control or prevent the risk of bleeding. People with hemophilia, working closely with their healthcare professionals, can live healthy lives with proper care and adequate treatment.
