Panamanian Foundation of Hemophilia has the mission to be the organization that is committed, promotor, and guarantor of comprehensive care for people with Hemophilia, Von Willebrand and other congenital coagulopathies at the National level. As a Foundation we have had many challenges and difficulties. The greatest challenge we have been facing since the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020 with the appearance of Covid-19 is the closure of many institutions. During this time, the focus of the Ministry of Health were matters related to COVID-19, leaving behind the other coagulopathies without any attention and many without treatment.
During this difficult period, the Panamanian Hemophilia Foundation developed strategies for medical care, transfer to hospitals, and treatment, keeping the entire community of congenital coagulopathies informed, and transforming the annual plan of activities via virtual modality.
