World Haemochromatosis Awareness Week 2024

World Haemochromatosis Awareness Week will take place this year from 1-7th June 2024. We are seeking your help! If you have any media contacts or know of TV or sports personalities who can endorse our campaign, we would be delighted to hear from you. Our mission as always will be to promote early diagnosis of haemochromatosis and educate and raise awareness of Ireland’s most common genetic disorder. You could also set up an information stand, do an interview on local radio or like and share our social media posts and stories.

We will also have a number of public buildings and monuments lit up red to highlight the campaign. We welcome your suggestions and ideas for promoting awareness during this important week. Email [email protected]
