Abstract

Summary.  Following a presentation given at the 16th Australian and New Zealand Haemophilia Conference; Enjoying your sex life: Issues and solutions for men with physical impairment [Dune TM. Enjoying your sex life: issues and solutions for men with physical impairment. 16th Australian and New Zealand Haemophilia Conference: Health and Wellbeing – The Decade Ahead. Sydney, Australia: Haemophilia Foundation Australia, 2011], this note summarizes some of the issues and discusses solutions men with haemophilia and chronic illness highlight when negotiating their sexuality. This note also purports that the lack of clinical expertise and empirical research on sexuality and haemophilia hinders to provision of holistic health care.
