Abstract

Many rapid advances have been made in the diagnosis and therapy of haemophilia. Nevertheless, the condition still poses problems and challenges (e.g., joint disease, transfusion-transmitted diseases, inhibitors, provision of care in developing countries, and education and cost issues). WHO and the World Federation of Hemophilia held a joint meeting in Geneva, on 21-23 March 1994, to discuss and review current and future approaches to the management of haemophilia and its complications, including prospects for genetic technology and gene therapy in developed and developing countries. The present review article summarizes the discussions and recommendations made by the participants.
