UIProject - Month 24

Friday, 20 October 2023

On behalf of all the International Union of Phlebology (UIP), I’d like to bring to all the healthcare professionals and the public attention the UIProject "Month 24" initiative.

UIP was founded on March 24, 1959 and in the following 64 years it has been surely succeeding in bringing the vein & lymphatic world together, counting now on 81 Scientific Societies from all continents.

If we want to understand our present, we must know the past that has taken us to our today. If we want to see our future, we must line up on our present actions.

In order to honor UIP March 24, 1959, every 24 of the month at 4 pm Rome time, myself and eventually available Executive Committee members will have an open to everyone zoom call where all the vein-lymphatic world and the public are invited to join to present their vision, ideas and eventual needs.

This glimpse of the current Phlebo-Lymphology around the world will provide the opportunity to analyze how the UIP can serve at best its member societies, while advocating for both colleagues and patients independently by their belonging or not to the UIP.

It’s the UIP hope that you will like to take part in this initiative, so to develop together “present actions” while looking together at the brightest future.

Pre-submitted topics for discussion will have precedence in the hour dedicated to this initiative: in case, feel free to send yours at

The zoom call will be recorded so to allow everyone to enjoy the content on demand in case.

Looking forward for demonstrating together that UIP starts with “U”, UIP looks forward for listening to “U” this October 24, at 4 pm Rome time, at this zoom link:
