CHS has initiated a new national awareness program: coderouge | when women bleed too much. The goal of this new program is to identify undiagnosed women with bleeding disorders and ensure that they have access to appropriate medical care from health care providers with expertise in bleeding disorders and the specific issues that relate to women.

On May 25, 2012, the CHS will launch coderouge by hosting the 1st Canadian Conference on Bleeding Disorders in Women, in Toronto. You will find attached the conference announcement.
