To sustain its authority as a self-help group and an effective lobbying voice, HFV relies on membership support. Government funding is used solely for administrative purposes. Members services and programs are funded from subscriptions, donations and fundraising.
HFV has come a long way in the 50 years since its launch in 1954.
A quick recap of a few of our achievements:
- The option of home treatment
- Safer product
- Prophylactic treatment
- No out of pocket costs for equipment for people with haemophilia - Equipment is funded by the Department of Health
- No out of pocket costs for product for people with haemophilia - Product is subsidised by the National Blood Authority and the Department of Health
We need to constantly monitor that government funding levels remain the same at the very least, and be on alert for emerging issues such as genetic testing.
A strong membership base is vital.
