About World Thrombosis Day Launched in 2014 and held annually on 13 October, World Thrombosis Day (WTD) aims to increase public, healthcare professional and health care systems’ awareness of thrombosis and, ultimately, to reduce deaths and disabilities from thromboembolic disease through a greater awareness of its causes, risk factors, signs and symptoms, and evidence-based prevention and treatment. WTD’s mission supports the World Health Assembly's global target of reducing premature deaths by non-communicable disease by 25 percent by 2025, as well as the WHO global action plan for the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases in the 2013-2020 timeframe. Unrestricted corporate grants to help support WTD come from founding global partner Bayer HealthCare; global partners are Boehringer Ingelheim, Bristol-Myers Squibb/Pfizer Alliance, Daiichi Sankyo, Janssen, Portola Pharmaceuticals and Roche; and global patron Medtronic.
