WORLD LYMPHEDEMA DAY - MARCH 6th 2020 - Lymphedema Awareness Month


Today, March 6 is Linfedem Day, and since the beginning of the Lymphedema and Lipedema Association of Galicia in 2004, we have strived for the dissemination and knowledge of these diseases, and their day of their celebration.

In 2016, a movement began in the United States by the LE&RN (Lymphatic Education & Research Network) organization, where it requested that the Senate of their country and governments around the world, recognized lymphedema and lymphatic pathologies. In response, the American Senate approved the Bill that established March 6 as World Lymphedema Day. Since then, the initiative has taken more strength and visibility.

This year in Europe, the initiative and response for a joint celebration of Lymphedema Day emerged, by patient associations from numerous countries, culminating in the drafting of a Manifesto signed by the following countries: Denmark, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Holland, Sweden, Germany, France, Ireland, England and Norway.

On behalf of the AGL Association, different activities on the occasion of Lymphedema Day, has been organized to be carried out:
