People with bleeding disorders global population 2018

In 2018, over 210 thousand people were living with hemophilia worldwide. At that time a further 78 thousand people were living with von Willebrand disease. Both of these bleeding disorders are genetic diseases that prevent blood from clotting normally.

Bleeding disorders

There are multiple types of hemophilia and bleeding disorders including hemophilia A, hemophilia B and various platelet disorders. Globally, hemophilia A has the largest distribution of people living with a bleeding disorder, followed by von Willebrand disease. Life expectancy for hemophilia has dramatically increased since the advent of medicine to help combat the disorder. Modern medical treatments have extended the life expectancy of a hemophilia patient from 30 to 68 years.

U.S. market

In the U.S. alone there are almost 18 thousand patients with hemophilia and over 11 thousand with von Willebrand disease. Hemophilia A is more common than hemophilia B. In the U.S. over 13 thousand patients had hemophilia A as of 2018. Comparatively, just 4 thousand patients had hemophilia B at that time. While hemophilia and other bleeding disorders can affect persons of any ethnicity, von Willebrand patients in the U.S. are largely white or Caucasian. In 2018, over 80 percent of von Willebrand patients were white.
