Buddy Awards NZ 2015

Do you know someone who is a good buddy to a person living with a bleeding disorder?


HNZ announced in the July issue of Bloodline that the Buddy Awards would be coming to Australia and New Zealand following the launch at the 2014 WFH World Congress. Well the Buddy Awards have now arrived in New Zealand!

To increase awareness of the challenges faced by people living with bleeding disorders, Haemophilia Foundation New Zealand have got on board with the Buddy Awards, sponsored by Novo Nordisk.
The Buddy Awards recognise the significant medical, emotional and practical support provided by family, friends, healthcare professionals, teachers and others, to people with bleeding disorders.
Families and friends take on a great deal of responsibility for their sibling/friend and this often goes unnoticed. The Buddy Awards celebrate the invaluable contribution they make.
This is your chance to recognise those people in your life that make a huge difference to you.
