World Continence Week 2024
World Federation of Incontinence and Pelvic Problems (WFIPP)

WFIPP is pleased to announce that the World Continence Week (WCW) toolkit for 2024 is now available online (Resources Archive – Included in this toolkit are the various WCW2024 posters! All created to help you promote World Continence Week 2024 across the globe.

World Continence Week (WCW) is an annual initiative devised and managed by WFIPP, with the endorsement and support of the International Continence Society (ICS), European Association of Urology(EAU) and the Ibero-American Society of Neurourology and Urogynaecology (SINUG).

It is a global initiative intended to raise awareness of bladder & bowel issues, chronic pelvic pain and other debilitating conditions which impact greatly on the lives of patients, families and carers. Our main themes for 2024 are Shared Decision Making, Incontinence and Mental Health and Commitment to Collaboration in Continence Care (the 4 C’s Project).

WFIPP is arranging a series of webinars including those where individual companies will be able to present their innovative device/treatment. Furthermore, there will be a very special webinar/roundtable dedicated to the 4 C’s Project (Commitment to Collaboration in Continence Care) and a special webinar organized together with ECHAlliance about: ‘Continence Thematic Innovation Ecosystem’, both with prominent speakers from across the globe. More details to follow.

Clearly, the objective is to raise global awareness of such conditions and help remove stigmas and taboos via events, publications, press releases and the like. This with a view to providing a reliable and easily accessible forum for those seeking information – patients, families, carers, healthcare professionals, institutions (scientific and academic) and industry and of course all the patient advisory groups around the world.

And now it is your turn, either individually or via your various organizations, to get the message out loud and clear. The success of this global awareness-raising campaign really depends on a massive collaborative effort. WFIPP trusts you will use the toolkit to the full and asks you/your organization to hold as many events as possible to promote WCW24.
