Incontinence information in English

Incontinence is the unwanted and involuntary leakage of urine or faeces. It affects people from all cultures and it is not normal. The good news is incontinence can be treated, and in many cases cured. On this page you'll find information in English to help you learn more about healthy bladder and bowel habits.

"Incontinence can be an embarrassing problem, yet 1 in 4 people living in Australia experience it. You are not alone. Help is available. Speak to your doctor or call the National Continence Helpline on 1800 33 00 66."

- Stephen Marburg, Continence Nurse Advisor, National Continence Helpline

We made the following advert to communicate that incontinence is important in any language and that it is not dependent on culture or background. We hope this encourages people to visit our language pages and find the help that they need.
