HFA Research is aCommunity Centered, Community Focused, and Community Driven program aimed at improving the lives of bleeding disorders community members.
HFA launched its Research program following the completion of the CHOICE Project (Community Having Opportunity to Influence Care Equity). HFA ran the CHOICE Project through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from October 2011 to September 2015. The CHOICE Project aimed to collect information on the health experiences of people who have a doctor-diagnosed bleeding disorder and do not receive care at a federally-funded hemophilia treatment center (HTC), though ultimately all community members could participate in the CHOICE Project, including moms with a child(ren) with a bleeding disorder.
Over 150 community members helped develop the survey used in the CHOICE Project. Because of the community’s gracious help and positive response to the CHOICE Project, HFA decided to launch the HFA Research program aimed at improving the lives of bleeding disorders community members.
