WFIPP is pleased to announce that the World Continence Week (WCW) toolkit for 2022 is now available online (Resources Archive – WFIPP.org). Included in this toolkit are the various WCW2022 posters! All created to help you promote World Continence Week 2022 across the globe.
World Continence Week (WCW) is an annual initiative devised and managed by WFIPP, with the approval of the International Continence Society (ICS) and European Association of Urology(EAU). 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 and carers. Our main theme for 2022 is Sustainable Continence Care.
This year WFIPP is arranging a series of dedicated webinars whereby individual companies will be able to present their innovative device/treatment. Furthermore, there will be a very special webinar dedicated to the launch of the “incontinence ecosystem”, which WPIPP is setting up together with the ECHAlliance.
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.
WFIPP trusts you will use the toolkit to the full and asks you/your organization in turn to hold as many events as possible to promote WCW 2022.
It would appear that urinary incontinence affects up to 1 in 3 people and is more common than hay fever.
So the message is simple: let’s get out there and ‘do something’ to ensure the success of WCW 2022.
