Abstract

The aim of this article is to provide an up-to-date overview on paediatric haemophilia care in the world, with emphasis on medical treatment, rehabilitation, and orthopaedic surgery. The reason these specific professions caregivers are included is that over 90% of bleeding episodes in people with haemophilia (PWH) occur within the musculoskeletal system; and of these 80% of bleedings occur in joints.
