Malaysia prepares to welcome the World Federation of Hemophilia Congress 2020
Marking the first time it will be held in Malaysia, the biennial congress will see leading healthcare experts from 125 countries gather in June at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
Malaysia was chosen as the host country for the congress in 2014, with the recent WFH Congress 2018 held in Glasgow marking the official handover ceremony.
“Health-focused congress like WFH World Congress 2020 plays an important role in increasing the number of international delegates and the benefits are far-reaching,” said Zulkefli Haji Sharif, Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau CEO. “Malaysia will witness the congregation of 4300 delegates from all over the world and the congress comes in at a time when the Malaysia medical tourism market is expected to witness a pronounced growth.”
Besides a meeting place for patients with bleeding disorders and their families, the Congress will also see a multidisciplinary programme on emerging topics in the inherited bleeding disorders field be organised.
