INTERNATIONAL VEIN WEEK
5 – 11 April 2021
The South African Lymphatic & Venous Society (SALVS) invites you to join the global public and health professionals venous-lymphatic awareness project, The International Vein Week. This not-for-profit initiative is hosted under the auspices of SALVS in collaboration with venous-lymphatic World International Network (v-WIN).
Lymphatic and Venous Diseases affect the South African population at large. This includes Deep Vein Thrombosis, Lipoedema, Lymphoedema, Spider Veins, Varicose Veins and Venous Leg Ulcers. These conditions can have a negative psychosocial impact on patients and severely impact their quality of life. The campaign’s objective is to encourage Health Care Practitioners and the public to become proactive rather than reactive in managing lymphatic and venous diseases.
