World Continence Week 22-28 June 2015

22 - 28 June 20145 is World Continence Week! This annual initiative from the International Continence Society, reminds us that incontinence affects about 400 million people worldwide. Incontinence affects one in four women over the age of 35, and one in 10 adult men. The involuntary leakage of urine and the involuntary loss of liquid or solid stool is something that can be treated, often cured, and always managed. Please seek help from an incontinence trained healthcare professional or contact your local continence foundation for support in locating a professional.
