Supporting people with bleeding disorders

The Finnish Hemophilia Society (SHY) is a non-profit patient organisation for people with haemophilia A or B, von Willebrand disease or other rare bleeding disorders. Our goal is to provide peer support to people with bleeding disorders and their families in Finland.
