World Forum of National Continence Foundations

Society Meeting

Continence Beyond Borders

The Italian Continence Foundation (FIC) aims to present its structure and activities, thanking the hospitality of ICS and its Annual Meeting in Florence. FIC, over the last 15 years, promoted care for continence by research, events, awareness and active work with Italian Institutions resulting, among other things, in the creation of an official network of centres in several regions and in collaboration with the Ministry of Health for a steering document. FIC wishes to compare itself with other Foundations worldwide, in order to develop interchanges and collaboration.
