The Haemophilic Welfare Society of Chandigarh today organised a day long open clinic for patients with Haemophilia

CHANDIGARH, MARCH 19 The Haemophilic Welfare Society of Chandigarh today organised a day long open clinic for patients with Haemophilia (PWHs) for the effect treatment and management of the disease. Speaking on the occasion, Dr. J.G.Jolly , Emeritus Professor Transfusion Medicine and formally professor of Transfusion Medicine PGIMER, Chandigarh and Chairman of the Society said that Haemophilia was a hereditary disease characterized by deficient activity of blood clotting factors of VIII & IX. Dr. Jolly emphasised on the need to provide necessary backup support to the affected parents to enable them to cope with the tremendous psychological stress from the day one when their child was diagnosed as a Haemophiliac. To achieve this objective NGOs and other social and voluntary organisations could play a vital role in overcoming the stress encountered by these hapless parents for none of their fault. Similarly, PWHs should also be encouraged and motivated considerably to lead a happy and normal life by giving them timely care and treatment and concerted efforts should be made by the parents, teachers and medical fraternity to boost their morale so as to lead them a normal; life without developing a feeling of inferiority complex amongst them.
