About the Think Tank


The EHC Think Tank is an European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) initiative and the EHC Steering Committee oversees the Think Tank’s work as a whole, while a designated Think Tank Council offers strategic advice, guidance, and input on its externally-facing work, particularly on the focus and composition of workstreams.
