CHS survey on novel factor VIII and IX products extended
We really need more responses from people with hemophilia B. Factor IX products may be first on the market. We would greatly appreciate you completing the questionnaire. Your answers will remain confidential.
Please note that the CHS is conducting this survey with the help of HealthPulse, a market research company. At the end of the survey, you are required to provide your name and contact information to HealthPulse. This is so that 1) HealthPulse can follow up with you for clarification, if necessary; and 2) HealthPulse can contact you to invite you to participate in future market research of its own or in collaboration with the CHS. Your personal information remains confidential at all times and will not be shared with others.

Tainted Blood: battles for compensation continue internationally
Tainted Blood - Betrayal and Lies
To learn more about their efforts, this committee of volunteers also have a Web site:
I AM A SURVIVOR!
- Were you directly infected with HIV through the blood system?
- Are you covered under the MPTAP compensation plan?
- Did you marry or have children since September 15, 1993?
If you answered “yes” to these questions we need to hear from you.
IF YOU SIGNED THE MPTAP AGREEMENT AND HAVE SUBSEQUENTLY MARRIED, YOUR NEW SPOUSE OR ANY CHILDREN BORN ARE NOT ENTITLED TO SURVIVOR BENEFITS!
IF THIS APPLIES TO YOU, WE WANT TO HELP. WE WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT HOW MANY OF OUR MEMBERS ARE IN THIS SITUATION.
The CHS is prepared to lobby provincial and territorial Health Ministers with a view to extending survivor benefits to all spouses and children of directly infected long-term survivors covered by the MPTAP, including those spouses and children who became part of the claimants’ lives after the time of applying and being accepted under the plan. We are also looking for individuals who are prepared to join the working group and help bring this to fruition.
