Bayer HealthCare today announced the 2012 recipients of the Bayer Hemophilia Awards Program (BHAP). This year, the company awards a total of approximately $2.3 million USD in funding to 15 recipients in nine countries.
BHAP is the largest program of its kind in hemophilia, funding innovative research and educational initiatives around the world. As such, BHAP is part of Bayer’s commitment to research, support and disease management in hemophilia.
The 2012 announcement is especially meaningful, as it marks the 10th anniversary of BHAP and its resulting contributions to the global hemophilia community. Since its founding in 2002, BHAP has awarded more than 200 grants, totaling more than $24 million USD, to researchers and caregivers from 29 countries around the world. BHAP support has resulted in more than 360 scientific abstracts, publications and presentations by awardees.
