At the ISTH, we believe that all scientists, physicians and
allied health professionals with an interest in thrombosis and hemostasis
should be able to access the latest information and education. They should have
the opportunity to participate actively in the global exchange of scientific
and clinical information, regardless of where they live.
We specifically launched our Reach-the-World program to give healthcare
professionals from developing
countries (countries classified by the World Bank as low-income, lower-middle-income, or upper-middle-income) access
to thrombosis and haemostasis related knowledge and education.
Our Reach-the-World program encompasses:
- Offering deeply
discounted ISTH membership rates to applicants
capacity by giving fellows the opportunity to study, research and/or lecture at a variety of host institutions
by funding their airfare,
accommodations and living expenses.
- Making available travel
grants to and waiving registration fees for ISTH Congress and SSC Meeting attendees.
- Supporting educational
courses in developing countries
