One of the greatest challenges facing people with bleeding disorders today is poverty. Poverty can have significant impacts on a person’s health and well-being, and people with bleeding disorders experience poverty at a much higher rate than other people.
However, poverty, who it affects, how they’re affected, and what can be done about poverty is a complex discussion. Addressing the issue of poverty among people with bleeding disorders begins with understanding who is affected, and some of the ways it changes their lives.
