With just 2 ½ weeks to go, World Continence Week 2023 is almost upon us!
WFIPP is pleased to announce that all materials relating to World Continence Week 2023 (WCW23) are now available online via the WFIPP website and other social media channels. Included are the dedicated WCW23 series of webinars taking place between 19th and 23rd June 2023 (programme attached), the WCW23 toolkit with all the infographics and posters (World Continence Week 2023 Toolkit – WFIPP.org) and the WCW23 logo (attached). All created to help you promote WCW23 in your national area and around the world.
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 Urogynecology (SINUG).
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 session dedicated to the 4 C’s Project (Commitment to Collaboration in Continence Care and a special webinar organized together with ECHAlliance about Stigma and Taboo, both with prominent speakers from across the globe.
For more information about the 4 C’s Project please go to: Press Release: A commitment to collaboration in continence care between international scientific societies and patient organizations – WFIPP.org
For 2023 the WFIPP has selected 10 themes that are reflected in the poignant images to accompany the toolkit.
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 WCW23.
After all, bladder weakness alone (notwithstanding faecal incontinence) affects 1 in 3 women and 1 in 10 men and is more common than hay fever.
So the message is simple: let’s get out there and ‘do something’ for the 400+ million to ensure the success of WCW23.
Please share with WFIPP all your World Continence Week 2023 events, photographs, podcasts, videos, social media campaigns etc. in order to make one big collective image after WCW23.
