HEMOPHILIA EDUCATIONAL SERVICES

The Program provides support for the Hemophilia Advisory Panel. The Panel was established in 1983 to advise the department on programs and policies pertaining to hemophilia and related congenital bleeding disorders. It has produced a variety of educational materials, including posters distributed to hospital emergency rooms throughout the state explaining how to provide urgent care to persons with hemophilia and a thirty-four page publication entitled Hemophilia Treatment in New York State: Status Report and Recommendations. In 1993, the Program was awarded a grant of more than three million dollars through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to determine the incidence and prevalence of hemophilia A and B and their associated complications (including HIV infection and joint and liver disease) in New York State. New York was one of only six states to receive such an award. Between 1993 and 1998, 1,469 state residents with hemophilia were identified. Approximately 60% of these receive comprehensive care in the state's federally funded hemophilia treatment centers.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Accessibility Policy

Wadsworth Center is committed to ensuring information is accessible to all users. Wadsworth Center's website has been developed following the New York State Office of Technology Policy and the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) standards. We are actively engaged in the ongoing process of testing our website for compliance with current accessibility standards.

Every consideration has been taken to ensure that ALL INFORMATION IS ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE when using non-standard compliant browsers. It is recommended that you upgrade to a standards compliant browser or turn style sheets on if available.

Content and structure have been separated from the presentation by the use of style sheets to maximize portability and accessibility; ensuring accessibility in today's browsers and devices, and to remain viable as browsers and devices evolve. Attempting to deliver web site information that looks and works exactly the same in compliant and non-compliant browsers alike is often at the cost of accessibility, long-term viability, and forward compatibility.
