The CHS-MC Sports Bursary program promotes a healthy lifestyle for children and youth with bleeding disorders through safe physical activities. Chapter youth, 17 years or younger, with a moderate or severe bleeding disorder can apply. 

New for 2021

COVID-19 has made it difficult for Chapter children to participate in organized sports. The Chapter's Member Services Committee is offering 10 - $100 bursaries that can be used towards the purchase of a bike for an eligible child. To apply for the bursary, please fill out the Sports Bursary form and send it to the Chapter Office for pre-approval. Approved applicants will then send the receipt for the bike purchase to the office to receive the bursary. 

The $100 Sports Bursary for a bike purchase will be available until September 1st or until all the bursaries are filled.

Updated charts for products in the pipeline have been uploaded on the CHS website. The CHS publishes four charts, one each for clotting factor concentrates, inhibitor products, non‐factor coagulation products that may prove efficacious in both inhibitor and non‐inhibitor patients, and gene therapy, in order to help everyone stay informed of their progress through clinical trials and regulatory approval.

Also on the CHS website, you can access charts listing all the products currently available to patients. These charts include the following: recombinant factor VIII, factor VIII & von Willebrand factor (plasma-derived), recombinant factor IX, factor IX (plasma-derived), recombinant von Willebrand factor, products for patients with inhibitors, and products to treat rare factor deficiencies.
