Foundation for Women & Girls with Blood Disorders

In 2010, the Foundation for Women & Girls with Blood Disorders (FWGBD), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, was launched to serve as a single site, single source where physicians and healthcare providers can obtain information. Provider education, across disciplines, will be the focus of the Foundation. We will benefit women and girls by educating their providers.

The Foundation is dedicated to achieving correct diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders and accompanying reproductive problems in women and girls with von Willebrand disease (VWD), other factor deficiencies, thrombophilias, sickle cell disease (SCD), hemoglobinopathies, immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and anemias. FWGBD is an innovative organization that will build the education resource base in these important areas.

The Foundation is a partner of THSNA – the Thrombosis & Hemostasis Societies of North America.
