Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder affecting about 1 lakh families in India . Due to lack of awareness and diagnostic facilities only 10% of such children have been diagnosed as of now. Prohibitively expensive treatment is the biggest deterrent in hemophilia treatment leading to disabilities and other social problems. SHC India is advocates for affordable treatment support to such people.

Society for Hemophilia Care (SHC India ) – a registered all India Voluntary Organisation is working for such deprived people. It operates in the States of J & K, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi , U.P., Bihar , Karnataka and Kerala.
