National Multidisciplinary Research Advisory Committee

In 2011 the CHS established a national multidisciplinary research advisory committee to better define our research agenda in order to address pressing treatment needs. The objectives of the committee are to help the CHS establish research priorities; help the CHS run its research programs in the most effective ways;help the CHS establish strategic partnerships.

International Projects Committee

The purpose of this committee is to provide support and guidance to CHS chapters/ regions / Canadian Hemophilia Clinics engaged or wishing to become involved in twinning projects aimed at enhancing organizational capacity and supporting hemophilia care in developing countries. The committee is also responsible for identifying and funding projects submitted by the CHS chapters/regions/hemophilia clinics.

National Awards Committee

The National Awards Committee is responsible for the planning and delivery of a national awards program designed to honour and recognize volunteers, staff and organizations who have contributed towards improving the quality of life of persons with hemophilia or other inherited bleeding disorders.

National Youth Committee

The National Youth Committee consists of very excited and energetic individuals who represent almost all regions of Canada who are working together to support, promote and address youth involvement within the organization. The role of the committee is to develop and implement youth programs which will not only respond to the needs of Canadian youth with a bleeding disorder but also will contribute to their involvement within the organization.
