Publication Date: 28 Feb 2017

Hearts, Hopes and Aims: The Singapore Rare Disease Impact Study, is a comprehensive study to better understand the needs of rare disease patients and their caregivers in Singapore, with the intention to identify areas for community involvement and humanitarian solutions. This study will provide insights into the lives of the patients in Singapore, particularly their challenges and dreams.

With this, we will be able to bring together the many stakeholders in rare disease management to catalyse strategic solutions for the management and care of rare disease patients and their families. We believe that with our concerted effort, we will be that much more effective.

Illness Group: Haemophilia
Publication Date: 11 Mar 2016

About one in 10,000 people are born with haemophilia. Most are not diagnosed and do not receive treatment. Standards of haemophilia care also differ widely across countries in Asia. We would like to change that.

Rainbow Across Borders brought together haemophilia patient groups from Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Singapore at the Principles of Haemophilia Care Round Table Meeting in January. The aim was to discuss the Souther East Asian Principles of Haemophilia Care suggested by the Asia Pacific Haemophilia Working Group.
