The PACT Workshop and the PACT Foundation Grants are two exciting services that are available to other chapters/associations throughout the country.
PACT Grant Program
The rapidly changing marketplace has raised questions about the future of hemophilia care delivery, and patient access to the full range of needed products and services, including access to the appropriate specialty providers who offer them. The challenge is to preserve policies and programs that ensure patient access.
In 2005 Shire agreed to fund a pilot program which would support state advocacy initiatives that are geared toward maintaining and/or expanding access to high quality care for persons with hemophilia. To date 92 grants have been awarded, totaling over $2 million.
