Haemophiliacs Urged to Manage their Illness UncategorizedApril 15, 2007 RelatedHaemophiliacs Urged to Manage their Illness Advertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Haemophiliacs are being urged to take a more active role in managing their own illness, so as to ensure a better quality of life.Consultant Haemotologist at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Dr. Doreen Brady-West, told JIS News that persons with the condition need to be more proactive in order to push for more programmes targeting their needs.Haemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder that is due to the absence or reduced amount of a particular clotting factor, and mainly affects males.Dr. Brady-West’s appeal comes in the wake of the observation of World Haemophilia Day on April 17, which will focus on the theme, ‘Improve Your Life: Physical Therapy’.She also encouraged persons with the condition to become members of the Jamaican branch of the World Federation of Haemophilia, in order to give a voice to their needs. “Make us know that you are there,” she implored, adding that the association wanted to know their needs.As it stands now, the organization is mainly comprised of medical personnel who work in the field and a few persons living with the condition. “We do not have a lot of support from both haemophiliacs and their relatives.maybe some, but not a lot,” she acknowledged.“Patients are just not motivated to join, because the level of care that they get is really not very high because of the cost factor [clotting agent],” Dr. Brady-West added.Nevertheless, she is hopeful that haemophiliacs will see joining the association as a way to improve their condition. “In many developed countries there are strong organisations, where the patients are very vigilant and demand all sorts from the government,” she said.Haemophiliacs, she pointed out, also had an important role to play in educating more persons about their condition.“You need to educate the persons in your communities, Members of Parliament and even teachers, because very often the children [with the illness] need letters to take to their schools, so that teachers can understand activities that they can do,” she explained.It is estimated that there are 400,000 people affected worldwide by the bleeding disorder, with some 75 per cent of them undiagnosed and untreated. In Jamaica, there are reportedly 300 persons living with the condition. RelatedHaemophiliacs Urged to Manage their Illness RelatedHaemophiliacs Urged to Manage their Illness

Just over 100 delegates and participants are expected to attend the event, which will be held under the patronage of Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States, Her Excellency Audrey Marks. “This convention is important as it will give us the opportunity to review our performance and to look at finding new ways to improve our organisation as well as to assist our beloved country,” said NAJASO’s President, Roy Davidson. He told JIS News that this year’s event theme: ‘Remembering the Past-Impacting the future’, reflects the commitment to build on the foundation that has been laid over the past 34 years to have a significant impact on the future. Mr. Davidson stated that the organisation’s leadership is committed to encouraging Jamaicans residing in the United States, as well as American corporate interests, to renew their focus on Jamaica. “It is important that new opportunities for investment be communicated to the Jamaican public at large and to those in the American business sector, who have an interest in developing economic partnerships with local players in the Jamaican marketplace,” he said. The NAJASO President noted that in addition to facilitating trade and investment, the organisation is also focused on education. “This has always been one of our primary areas of emphasis. Since 1988, NAJASO has funded at least 20 scholarships in higher education at the University of the West Indies (UWI). This contribution has been broad… rationale is to make funding available regardless of the academic discipline,” he noted. The scholarships, which average US$2,000, is made available each year to two students, who have distinguished themselves academically, but who also present a credible case for financial support. Meanwhile, the annual convention will commence with a welcome reception with Mayor of Detroit, Dave Bing, delivering the keynote address. Activities on July 15 include an education and health seminar; luncheon; and business seminar featuring representatives from Victoria Mutual Building Society (VMBS), JAMPRO, Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) and the McDonalds Corporation. On July 16, the 34th annual general meeting and election of a new board will take place and the convention will end with the annual awards banquet and the induction of the new president later that evening. The keynote speaker at the banquet will be President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of VMBS, Richard Powell. A non-profit organisation founded in 1977, NAJASO is the umbrella association of Jamaicans and supportive bodies throughout the United States.
