INTRODUCTION:

The study is the first application of the Principles of Haemophilia Care for Europe (PHCE) in other regions of the world, specifically in Latin America.

OBJECTIVE:

To identify strengths in the care of haemophilia, and the aspects that should be improved.

METHODS:

The information was obtained through a questionnaire designed according to the PHCE and answered by specialists in mid-2016. The countries included were as follows: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Mexico, Panama, Dominican Republic and Venezuela.

RESULTS:

In most countries, there is a central organization for haemophilia care supported by local groups. The existence of a national registry of people with haemophilia (PWH) was verified in eight countries. Centres of integrated care are located in large cities. In the majority of countries, there was no evidence of the participation of multiple actors in the decision-making. The supply of factor concentrates presents constraints, although it is reported as adequate in half of the countries. In most countries, home treatment is available under special conditions. In most countries, there are restrictions on the use of prophylaxis. The coordination of specialized and emergency services depends on each centre. Unrestricted treatment of inhibitors is performed in most countries. In all countries, there are human resources training programmes; however, clinical and health services researches are not widely developed.

CONCLUSION:

The study identifies the initial situation of principles of care, as well as the alternatives that must be implemented to achieve improvements in the quality of life of PWH in the region.
