2018 IUGA Public Forum at the IUGA Annual Meeting 2018

WFIP is pleased to announce the upcoming 2018 IUGA Public Forum at the IUGA Annual Meeting 27 – 30 June 2018. This event is taking place in conjunction with World Continence Week 2018, organized by WFIP.

WFIP plays a prominent role in the Public Forum which and is supported by both WFIP and Medizinische Kontinenzgesellschaft Osterreich.


The International Urogynecological Association (IUGA) will hold its 2018 IUGA Public Forum from 4:30-6:00pm on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, in conjunction with World Continence Week.
Each year, IUGA holds a free forum, open to the residents of the local community hosing its annual meeting. The aim of the Public Forum is to empower women and advance their understanding of problems with the pelvic floor area, such as incontinence. This year, IUGA is pleased to present its Public Forum to residents of the greater Vienna area during its Annual Meeting, which runs from June 27-30. IUGA’s Annual Meeting will bring approximately 1,500 attendees who specialize in the fields of pelvic pain and female pelvic floor disorders to the Austria Center for education and training.
At the 2018 IUGA Public Forum, you will have the opportunity to hear from local experts in pelvic floor disorders. You will be surrounded by others just like yourself – those experiencing pelvic floor issues and looking for answers, those who want to learn how to prevent pelvic floor disorders in the first place, and caregivers – all in a safe environment where it is OK to ask the questions you have been too afraid or embarrassed to ask.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 IUGA Public Forum on Tuesday, June 26.
