About Us

Improving the quality of life for those affected by hemophilia and other bleeding disorders

The Midwest Hemophilia Association is a non-profit organization formed to promote awareness, provide group support, educate, and facilitate communication for the bleeding disorders community of Kansas and Missouri. We provide information on available treatments, insurance and reimbursement issues, and related legislative efforts.

We also sponsor educational seminars and conferences, publish a quarterly newsletter, and hold special social events for the benefit of our members. In an effort to ease the adjustment to living with a chronic bleeding disorder, MHA’s partnership with NHF’s Steps for Living program provides an avenue of support and education for families of newly diagnosed family members with a bleeding disorder. In addition, the MHA hosts a one-week summer camp every August specifically for kids ages 7 – 17 with bleeding disorders.
