In this episode of HemoStories, Josie interviews Megan Adediran, the Executive Director of the Haemophilia Foundation of Nigeria. Megan walks us through her journey from an unknowing carrier, to becoming a hemo-mom, and how that led to her becoming the founder and president of the country’s only hemophilia organization. 

Josie lays out the current state of hemophilia in Nigeria, and HemoHelper’s plans to contribute to the situation in that nation.
