Global ITP Awareness Week - September 23-27


 Global ITP Awareness Week - September 23-27, 2019.  Individuals from around the world will join together to promote public awareness of immune thrombocytopenia and share their ITP Warrior stories in their fight against ITP.

Since the 2010 designation of September as National ITP Awareness Month in the United States of America, immune thrombocytopenia patients and support organisations from around the world have celebrated the month with awareness-raising events and Sport Purple for Platelets Day (the last Friday of September) to promote public awareness for the most common autoimmune bleeding disorder unknown to most - ITP.

In 2016, ITP Patient organisations from across the globe united as the International ITP Alliance in order to create a global voice for ITP patients and invite ITP patients and family you to join the week-long celebration that is Global ITP Awareness Week, helping to create a deeper understanding of ITP around the world.

As you join the global movement and paint social media purple this September, don’t forget to use #ITPaware and #global4ITP!

How do you take part?

Take a photo holding the ‘Going #global4ITP’ sign (and wear purple for platelets!) and email your photo to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
