The intercontinental partnership of ITP patient support organizations committed to education, awareness and establishing a global voice for immune thrombocytopenia patients.

Global ITP Awareness Week

September 23-27, 2019

4th Annual Global Event

Since the 2010 designation of September as National ITP Awareness Month in the United States, immune thrombocytopenia patients and support organizations 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, these organizations united as the International ITP Alliance to create a global voice for ITP patients and invite you to join the week-long celebration again this year 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!
