Empowering People with Advocacy

The South Carolina Hemophilia and Bleeding Disorders Advocacy Coalition

Our Coalition’s Mission: To Empower the Hemophilia and Bleeding Disorders Community in South Carolina to speak to public and private decision-makers about improving Access to Quality and Affordable Health Care and Treatment.

We are thankful to the South Carolina Advocacy Coalition Committee Members who came together from all regions throughout the state and nationally to form the South Carolina Hemophilia and Bleeding Disorders Advocacy Coalition (SCHBDAC). Our commitment to all South Carolinians affected by bleeding disorders is to improve access to Affordable Quality Care and Treatment. Improving lives is our mission.

How do we do this? With a strong grass roots year-round Advocacy Coalition and Ambassador Program, we advocate here at home with our annual State Legislative Days in March, raise awareness during the National Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month of March, lighting our own hometown office city of Greenville Red, attend NHF's yearly Washington Days along with 46 states and over 450 members advocates, and secure proclations throughout all cities and counties in South Carolina! With quarterly trainings throughout the year, our advocates are informed and always ready to take action!

We are proud to be a member of the National Hemophilia Foundation State Based Advocacy Coalition (SBAC) program and are a proud recipient of the Advocacy & Public Policy Chapter of Excellence Award of the National Hemophilia Foundation in recognition of our commitment to advocacy and education initiatives both at the state and local level, aimed at improving the lives of those in the bleeding disorders community.
