Following a unanimous decision on Thursday 7 February 2019 at the Annual General Meeting, EAHAD officially transferred its legal base from the United Kingdom to Belgium. Therefore, EAHAD is now an international non-profit association (AISBL) under Belgian law.
This decision was taken due to operational considerations as both EAHAD’s office and much of its activity is based in and around Belgium and in the Euro zone. Moreover with the uncertainty around Brexit, and possible implications for European funding opportunities in the future, it was felt that running the organisation from the continent would provide more stability and sustainability.
While this is a major development, we would like to emphasise that one thing that will not change is our mission to improve the situation of people living with haemophilia and other bleeding disorders across Europe, including the United Kingdom. Our work will continue to be guided by the following aims:
• Ensure the provision of the highest quality of clinical care
• Educate the medical community and the general public
• Promote scientific research
