World Lymphedema Day
World Lymphedema Day 2020 will take place on March 6th, 2020.
This annual advocate-driven celebration aims to raise awaresness for all types of lymphatic diseases, primary and secondary lymphedema, lipedema, lymphatic filariasis, lymphatic malformations, and the full lymphatic continuum of diseases impacted by the lymphatic system.
In preparation of this international event, the patient advocates of our European Patient Advocacy Group (ePAG) for Pediatric and Primary Lymphedema (PPL) have created various important documents, including:
- A Manifesto signed by 23 European patient associations, currently available in English, Portuguese, German, Italian and Dutch
- A World Lymphedema Day factsheet
- Overview document for how to celebrate World Lymphoedema Day
