Lymphoedema Association of South Africa

LAOSA is a South African non-profit organization dedicated to advancing lymphoedema treatment, research and training.

We promote access to comprehensive lymphoedema care in both public and private healthcare sectors and maintain a National Practice Register of qualified lymphoedema therapists to uphold standards of care.

Engaging with medical aids and third-party payors, we advocate for improved reimbursement for treatment. Additionally, we foster research in lymphology, lymphoedema, and related oedemas within the South African context, and provide educational standards for lymphoedema therapists. Through consultations with various stakeholders, we have raised awareness and facilitated effective management of lymphoedema. Join our Facebook page for professional support and idea-sharing
