This educational resources page was developped in collaboration with the CHS 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.

It is hoped that the information contained in this page will be of assistance to active Canadian twins and those considering establishing a twinning partnership.

If your CHS Chapter or HTC is interested in a twinning project, or even to volunteer with one of our twinning teams, please contact Michel Long, CHS National Program Manager, for detailed information.

Should you have serious intent to twin, we kindly request that as a first step you contact Michel Long at the CHS, the National Member Organization (NMO) of the WFH, to enable  the CHS to provide support, counsel and resources to ensure a profitable twinning experience.

General information about the WFH twinning program can be found on the WFH website on this page

The CHS International Committee created a series of three educational webinars in 2017 for volunteers interested in becoming actively involved in international twinning partnerships under the WFH Twinning Program.

Webinar 1: READY … was held on June 28, 2017. Click HERE to view the recording of the webinar. This webinar was about beginning the twinning process in your own chapter or HTC; resources and paperwork; getting the facts.

Webinar 2: SET … was held on September 14, 2017. Click HERE to view the recording of the webinar.

The topics covered in this second webinar are:
– contacting the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) about being twinned;
– getting information about a prospective twin;
– completing the WFH assessment visit questionnaire;
– developing an assessment visit plan and questions for new twin and conducting an assessment visit;
– making the decision to continue.

Webinar 3: GO … was held on November 30, 2017. The recording can be viewed HERE.

This third webinar is about how to develop an action plan; expectations versus reality; setting achievable goals and outcomes; setting time frame for actions and outcomes; how to implement action plans.
