World Haemochromatosis Week

World Haemochromatosis Week is observed each year in the first week in June. The aim of the week is to raise awareness of haemochromatosis and to promote the work of member organisations. In spite of the restrictions on face-to-face activities due to COVID-19, member organisations continue to inform the public and educate healthcare professionals about hereditary (genetic) haemochromatosis, the importance of early detection and the need for equitable access to treatment.
