The Haemophilia Society campaign to get women talking about bleeding disorders
A bleeding disorder is a serious lifelong condition often requiring daily treatment and specialist care. There is a lot of misunderstanding about bleeding disorders and many people don’t know that women are affected too. In fact, tens of thousands of women across the UK are living with the symptoms of a bleeding disorder without even knowing it.
The Talking Red campaign was launched to make women more aware of the symptoms of a bleeding disorder – heavy periods, bruising easily and prolonged bleeding after a procedure or childbirth – and to promote better understanding of what it means to live with such a condition.
Bleeding disorders can’t be cured but there is effective treatment available, so our message is get Talking Red to help the thousands of women who are suffering in silence. We need your ongoing support to reach the tens of thousands of women unaware they have a bleeding disorder. We are now in the fourth year of Talking Red, and thanks to the fantastic support of women across the country we have spread the message right across the UK, but we have lots more to do. This year Talking Red is going to be bigger and better so please join us.
