NOW IS THE TIME FOR Action on Preventing Incontinence and Supporting Continence Care 

With more than half of all Australians affected by incontinence, and 50% reporting a significant impact on their mental health, now is the time for national leadership to implement systemic change with a new National Continence Action Plan.

Please pledge your support here for immediate action on preventing incontinence and supporting continence care 

 

The Continence Foundation’s Election Platform outlines three priority areas for immediate action by the next Australian government:

  • National leadership to set the agenda for continence care and support through systemic change and evidenced based support and care
  • Increase the availability of specialist continence services and trained health professionals
  • Build the capability of the workforce across health, ageing and disability sectors to support people with incontinence

The next Federal Government can improve the lives of Australians living with incontinence, strengthen the health system, prevent, and reduce disease burden and save money long-term by improving access to specialist services and quality care and support.
