the bleeding disorders community to celebrate our achievements and raise awareness," said Mark Skinner, WFH president. "The theme of this year's World Hemophilia Day, 'Together, we care' embodies our spirit of collaboration to work together to improve care for people with bleeding disorders. We are grateful to Wyeth for its support of our programs, especially the Twinning Program, which play a key role in achieving our vision of Treatment for All."

THE HEMOPHILIA COMMUNITY AND WYETH: A HISTORY OF PARTNERSHIP

Support of Children's Camping Initiatives

For years, Wyeth has recognized the importance of the summer camp experience to children in the bleeding disorders community. Since 1998, Wyeth has been a major sponsor of Barretstown in Ireland -- an innovative recreational facility -- where children with serious illnesses, including children with hemophilia, can participate in a range of fun activities that also are designed to promote self-confidence, independence, trust and coping skills. In addition to its ongoing support, Wyeth works with Barretstown to help run special camps for children with hemophilia.

Wyeth is also the founding and exclusive sponsor of NACCHO (North American Camping Conference of Hemophilia Organizations). The annual NACCHO conference is dedicated to the sharing of best practices for bleeding disorder summer camps. Through NACCHO, children attending summer camp also have the opportunity to participate in Leading Edge: Exploring the Outer Limits, a nationally run adventure program that focuses on self-confidence development for youth and adolescents in the bleeding disorders community. Through its grants to NACCHO, Wyeth has supported 1,000 campers nationally, and 500 campers internationally.
