Advocacy Toolkit

Millions of Americans are affected by blood disorders each year, which is why it is important for everyone to know about the risk factors, symptoms, treatments, and prevention strategies for these disorders.

The ASH Patient section aims to raise awareness about the importance of healthy blood and about the most common blood diseases, such as anemia, bleeding and clotting disorders, and blood cancers. Help us reach this goal by sharing information about this campaign and blood disorders with your community, the wider public, and legislators.

One of ASH’s top priorities is securing adequate funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the primary federal agency for conducting and supporting medical research. Each year, millions of Americans are affected by blood diseases. Hematology researchers are working to understand these disorders to enable the development of new and improved treatments. However, without adequate federal funding to support this important work, life-saving discoveries – such as those highlighted in the short film “Research Saves Lives” – would not be possible.
