The UC Davis Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center's mission is to improve the lives of people with bleeding and clotting disorders through comprehensive disease management, leading-edge research and education. We offer a variety of medical, educational and social resources to people with hemophilia and other inherited bleeding and clotting disorders, their families, health care providers, and the community. The Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) is part of the federally funded network of hemophilia treatment centers throughout the country. There are currently more than 140 accredited HTCs across the country and 11 in California.

Through the efforts of the hemophilia community and the treatment centers, the life expectancy of a child born with severe hemophilia has increased dramatically in the past 30 years. A hemophilic child born in 1960 was expected to live only 15-20 years. That same child born in 2000 can expect to live a nearly normal life span of 79 years. For patients with hemophilia, use of comprehensive center services in the 1990s has been shown to reduce mortality by 40 percent.
