threatening diseases. The prevalence of hemophilia is estimated to be about 1:10,000 birth
and that of the severe form of the disease to be about 6% per 1,00,000 population. The most

diagnosis and management. There is obviously a need to establish facilities and treatment
options that will help the patient with hemophilia to manage their life with ease. As this is a
genetic disorder no complete cure is possible as of now. The only available treatment option
is the infusion of factors and some adjuvant therapies depending upon the bleeding conditions

therapies or new treatment options has to be driven by pharmacy professionals. This article

pharmacy professionals for the benefit of millions of hemophilic patients .
