Making connections, building community, finding support.

When you live with hemophilia, it’s important to have a strong support network. In addition to relying on your family and friends, you’ll benefit from making connections with others in the bleeding disorders community. It can be so helpful to turn to your community when you’re facing a challenge. They understand just how you feel—because they’ve felt that way, too.

Insights from the HERO Study.

The HERO Study was conducted by Novo Nordisk to find out how people living with hemophilia feel about its impact on their lives.

Completed in 2012, it surveyed 1,386 people in 11 countries, making it the largest ever multi-national, multi-method study of life with hemophilia.

We’ve also developed a workshop that provides an overview of how hemophilia affected the lives of participants in the HERO study. Learn about key insights from the HERO study and how other people with hemophilia are living well with their bleeding disorder.
