Donating Factor To Ukrainian Patients
A local organization in the bleeding disorders community, Save One Life, has also stepped up to help patients in Ukraine. Project SHARE (Supplying Hemophilia Aid and RElief) is their humanitarian program to donate factor to patients with bleeding disorders in developing countries, and to the hospitals and nonprofit organizations that support them.
This program ensures that tens of millions of dollars worth of factor, which would otherwise be destroyed, reaches impoverished people with bleeding disorders. This factor comes mainly from US patients who switch products, HTCs, and specialty pharmacies with excess inventory.
Since 2002, SHARE has donated more than 167 million units and 9,745 mg — approximately $167 million worth — of factor to thousands of patients in 77 developing countries.
Programs like this have been crucial over the past twenty years, but have been even more necessary during humanitarian crises, like the war in Ukraine, or the global COVID-19 pandemic.
