Abstract
Background: Hemophilia in children is one of the most common serious congenital coagulation factor
deficiency diseases. The aim of this study was to assess the awareness among the population of Saudi Arabia about various aspects of hemophilia in children. Methodology: A cross-sectional electronic questionnaire-based study was conducted on 810 adult Saudi males and females of various ages from different districts (Southern, Eastern, Northern, Eastern, and Western), who represented all the different localities and cultures of the kingdom. Results: The present study showed that 46.7% of participants did not know about hemophilia. A decreased level of public awareness about hemophilia was reported in all the groups with no statistical significant
difference between secondary education group in comparison with university education group. Conclusion: The results of the present study raised the need for increasing public awareness about hemophilia in children. A multidisciplinary approach is mandatory, including educational programs and campaigns aiming at raising overall public awareness.

Key words: Children, Hemophilia, Public awareness, Saudi Arabia,
