Approximately 40 million people in India suffer from Lymphoedema. Out of these, filaria accounts for 20 million alone. In 1981, a thesis by one of the co-founders of Amla Mediquip, based on research conducted at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences showed that imported compression pumps and garments can be used for therapy of lymphoedema in India. However, there is yet scant awareness about lymphoedema, let alone its therapy. This is true not only amongst the patients but also among the care givers. Current facilities for treating these conditions cater to only 1% or so of the affected population. There is a prevalent reluctance to treat these dreaded conditions largely due to lack of knowledge of the methods as well as skepticism regarding the outcomes of treatment.
