Cuban hemophilia patients are grateful for their treatment at IHI

Havana, May 19 (Prensa Latina) Relatives and people suffering from hemophilia on Friday thanked the work done by the Institute of Hematology and Immunology of Cuba (IHI), a scientific center that relentlessly seeks to improve its patients’ quality of life.

According to medical literature, hemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder in which blood does not clot properly. This can cause spontaneously bleeding after surgery or an injury.

When blood does not clot properly, excessive bleeding (internal and external) occurs after a wound or injury. Symptoms include several large or deep bruises, joint swelling and pain, unexplained bleeding and blood in the urine or stool.

Its treatment consists of injections of a clotting factor or plasma. At the Hematology Congress 2023, which closed on Friday at Havana’s Conventions Center, those affected and their relatives expressed their affection and respect for the professionals in charge of their health.

Several relatives who were in the room where the 6th Workshop on Hemophilia and other coagulation disorders took place testified about some remarkable improvements that experts achieved with treatments since many patients, even those bedridden, took over their lives.

They were also grateful to the Revolution for its work because the Government made an effort to save people with hemophilia despite the United States economic, commercial and financial blockade, for over 60 years.

Amid difficulties, Cuba’s Institute of Hematology and Immunology takes its breakthroughs to all territories, highlighted the guests from other provinces.

The IHI was one of the leading centers in taking actions developed by the Cuban healthcare system against the impact of Covid-19 in the country.
