In the spotlight

Save the date! – EAHAD 2020 in The Hague from 5-7 February

The EAHAD 2020 Annual Congress will take place in The Hague, Netherlands, from 5 to 7 February 2020 at the World Forum congress centre.


Congress President Prof. Karin Fijn van Draat, with the support of the Congress Organising Committee, has put together an insightful programme, full of interesting sessions on the most pressing issues in haemophilia and bleeding disorders care today. With the theme “A Golden Age for Treatment Choice”, the programme pays homage to Dutch history and the legacy of 17th century art on display in The Hague, while highlighting the exciting period we find ourselves in in terms of haemophilia treatment and the many considerations that clinicians and patients must take into account.


This year, some of the highlights include the Wednesday morning multidisciplinary session on managing woman-specific bleeding issues led by EAHAD’s Women and Bleeding Disorder Working Group, as well as the always popular SLAM and Hot Topics presentations on Friday. The preliminary programme is already available on the EAHAD 2020 Congress website, with more information about the sessions and the speakers to come in the following weeks.


As has become tradition, the 13th iteration of the EAHAD Congress will start with the Multidisciplinary Pre-Congress Day on 4 February. Our committees and working groups are putting the final touches on their respective sessions, in order to offer the highest quality of content for their peers.


Abstract submission for EAHAD 2020 will run from late August to 24 October. Don’t forget to submit your abstract in time to share your latest research with the international bleeding disorders community. Registrations for the Congress will open in October.


We look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues in The Hague, the “Royal City by the Sea”, for a memorable scientific experience.
