- Women once in a while experience the ill effects of hemophilia
- Consistently numerous iconic structures across the world are ”Light it Up Red” on World Hemophilia Day to raise awareness and help those affected by inherited bleeding disorders.
- Hemophilia influences a larger number of men than women since they just have one pair of the X chromosome whereas women have two. The faulty genes that lead to Hemophilia lie within the X chromosome, thusly, the ones who have the X chromosome which carries the disease are affected by it though, in women, the other X chromosome makes up for the shortcomings.

Hemophilia An and B are unique in relation to one another and each type is caused because of low levels of an different clotting factor. Hemophilia An is more normal than Hemophilia B. It is caused by lower levels of the clotting factor VIII whereas haemophilia B is caused by lower levels of clotting factor IX.
