International Lymphoedema Framework (ILF)

ILF: A charity

The success of the UK Lymphoedema Framework in improving the management of this condition in Great Britain has led many international lymphoedema experts to express an interest in the methodology and spirit of the Framework. This is why Christine Moffatt and her team decided to set up the International Lymphoedema Framework (ILF) as a charity. The choice of charitable status is a strong message to the lymphoedema community on the ethos and vision that govern the Framework. It is also a guarantee of the independence of the ILF in the ethical use of its resources and its capacity to actively contribute to the improvement of the management of lymphoedema worldwide, and especially in developing countries.

We believe that:

  • Patients should always be at the heart of Framework Projects.
  • Only a collaborative and multidisciplinary partnership between all stakeholders, recognized as experts, can lead to an improvement in the management of lymphedema.
  • Improving the management of lymphedema is a dynamic process requiring ongoing research and implementation into practice.
  • International collaboration is essential.

What motivates us:

“Thanks for your assistance and all the work you have done and are doing to move Lymphedema forward. As a mom with a young child with Lymphedema, you have no idea how much your efforts mean to
