CAMPAIGN TO PREVENT CHILD ELEPHANTIASIS DUE TO PRIMARY LYMPHEDEMA / PEDIATRIC LYMPHOSTATIC DISORDER / RARE DISEASE / CHRONIC AND PROGRESSIVE LYMPHATIC CONDITION / PREVENTION AND AWARENESS-RAISING CAMPAIGN / リンパ浮腫の発症 および有病率に関する情報



Every day there are children worldwide being born with lymphostatic disorders, also known as Primary Lymphedema or Congenital Lymphedema. Elephantiasis is the worst stage that this disease can develop towards, and it is essential for these children to have access to proper treatment from a very early age.


In many European and industrialized countries, children born with lymphedema are receiving specialized treatment and the compression garments they need, but in poor regions of Africa, India, South America, Asia and Third World Countries, treatment for the majority these children is non-existent.



Campaigns by International Organizations and public awareness are necessary and essential, to prevent "Child Elephantiasis" due to lymphostatic disorders, so that these children may one day be adults with a good quality of life, and be safeguarded from a dramatic future which will probably await them.


Primary Lymphedema also leads to elephantiasis
Elephantiasis is not only due to filariasis
Lymphostatic disorders are a disease
Effective treatment exists
Prevention is essential


International Health Campaigns are necessary
