The current support available to all victims of the contaminated blood tragedy is nowhere near what is needed to compensate people for what has been lost. Haemophilia Wales will continue to campaign for improved financial support and and acknowledgement by the Government.
The Government has made no provision for infected individuals to obtain life Insurance or mortgage protection.
Up date on financial support
From 1 November 2017 support will be provided by a separate governmental organisation in each of the devolved administrations, depending on where an individual was infected with HIV and or Hepatitis C
