ICS is proud to be supporting World Continence Week (WCW); a global annual initiative managed by the World Federation of Incontinence and Pelvic Problems (WFIPP), intended to raise awareness of bladder & bowel issues, chronic pelvic pain and other debilitating conditions which have great impact on the lives of patients and carers.
WCW is also endorsed by European Association of Urology(EAU) and the Ibero-American Society of Neurourology and Urogynecology (SINUG) - which, along with ICS and WFIPP, collectively make up the '4 C's. The 4 C's Project stands for the main theme of 2023: Commitment to Collaboration in Continence Care. The main founding belief of the project is that meaningful collaboration between scientific societies, patient organisations and industry is the best way to address the needs of patients, and to effect positive structural changes within the healthcare system.
Programme of Webinars
This year WFIPP has arranged a series of informative webinars whereby individual companies present their innovative device and/or treatment. One of the highlights of the week is the webinar session dedicated to the 4 C’s Project, which takes place on Thursday 22nd June and includes guest ICS speakers Phillip van Kerrebroeck, Tiina Vaittinen and Michael van Balken.

The objective of WCW is to raise global awareness of continence conditions and help remove stigmas and taboos via events, publications, press releases and more. You can make an impact by helping to get the message out, either individually or via your various organisations. The success of this global awareness-raising campaign after all relies on a massive collaborative effort.
