The Continence Promotion Committee is pleased to announce that the Continence Awareness Forum will return for 2014 in Rio.

As well as the general public, we are inviting health care providers from all fields as well as patient advocacy groups. Various national patient advocacy groups exchange and share their knowledge and expertise, along with ICS opinion leaders discussing important news and changes.

We hope this will be an exchange of information regarding urinary incontinence and treatment among our countries including patients, healthcare professionals and industry representatives.
