YONGIN, South Korea — GC Biopharma (006280.KS), a South Korean biopharmaceutical company, takes part in a campaign to celebrate World Hemophilia Day.
Started in 1989 by the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) in honor of their founder Frank Schnabel’s birthday, World Hemophilia Day is celebrated annually on April 17 to raise awareness of the disease and other bleeding disorders.
The slogan of this year is “Access of all: Partnership. Policy. Progress.” The slogan emphasizes its sustainable management and therapeutic system through a national level policy for bleeding disorders, including hemophilia.
In the sense of supporting hemophilia community, the company posts this year’s slogan image on giant exterior media façade of its main campus in Yongin, South Korea.
“We are proud to participate in the campaign to foster solidarity and hope among the hemophilia community,” said Eun Chul Huh, Ph. D., President GC Biopharma. “We will be responsible for enhancing the quality of hemophilia patients’ lives.”
Hemophilia is a congenital disorder that causes longer-than-normal bleeding due to absent or deficient clotting factor in the blood. Hemophilia A is more common than hemophilia B; hemophilia A affects about 150,000 people, whereas hemophilia B affects about 30,000 people worldwide. Treatment regimens typically include on-demand and/or regular prophylactic infusions of factor replacement therapy to control or prevent the risk of bleeding. People with hemophilia, working closely with their healthcare professionals, can live healthy lives with proper care and adequate treatment.
