Current treatments in the field of haemophilia are changing the phenotype of many patients with severe haemophilia to that of mild haemophilia. Despite this improvement, those with mild-to-moderate haemophilia A and haemophilia B continue to experience unmet needs. Whereas some patients with mild-to-moderate haemophilia experience similar complications to those of patients with severe haemophilia, they possess several unique attributes. These include a challenging diagnosis and variability in bleeding symptoms and treatment needs. In addition, haemophilia is an under-recognized condition in women even though many women with mild-to-moderate haemophilia experience the same symptoms and complications as men with haemophilia. These women also have their own unique challenges with this disease. This supplement highlights many of the unmet needs in men and women with mild-to-moderate haemophilia. The conclusions of each of these papers reinforce the need for additional research and resources for this patient population.
