Demystifying Lymphedema Management
Lymphedema is a chronic swelling condition that contributes to disability, dysfunction and lost quality of life.
Significant disparities exist worldwide regarding the availability of resources necessary to identify, treat and manage lymphoedema.
This disparity transcends socio-economic status and is a common problem in both developed and developing countries.
The overall impact of lymphoedema as a public health problem, however, is underestimated, principally due to the lack of epidemiologic data.
These problems pose barriers to optimal identification and management of this disabling, lifelong condition.
Lymphedema Awareness Month is celebrated in March each year to empower the community and spread awareness about the condition through advocacy and education.
The objective of this seminar is to define similarities and differences in strategies for lymphoedema management
between developed and developing countries and advocate for a cohesive and concerted approach to disease management.
