Welcome to National Hemophilia Foundation’s Virtual 2022 Washington Days!

NHF’s Washington Days is an opportunity for people affected by inherited blood disorders to advocate for issues that are important to them. In 2021, Washington Days had more than 400 volunteer advocates from 44 states that met with legislators and staff to discuss federal funding for bleeding disorder programs and support policies that increase affordability of coverage and access to care.  

Washington Days 2022 will be an entirely virtual experience with programming from March 1 – March 2.

The issues at Washington Days 2022 will include:

  • Bleeding Disorders Awareness (March is our month!)
  • Federal Funding for Bleeding Disorders Program
  • HR 5801 (Accumulator Adjuster Legislation)
