Safe Circumcision Training for Haemophilia Patients

Haemophilia is a medical condition in which the ability of the blood to clot is severely reduced, causing the sufferer to bleed severely from even a slight injury. The condition is typically caused by a hereditary lack of a coagulation factor, most often factor VIII and factor IX.

The safe circumcision training was held at Kenyatta National Hospital on 28th March - 1st April 2022 with 40 participants including doctors and nurses. It was lead by Dr.  Peter, Chairperson of Kenya Haemophilia Association and benefited more than 90 patients.
