World Continence Week 2017

World Continence Week is an initiative of the International Continence Society and is coordinated in Australia by the Continence Foundation.

This year’s theme, Incontinence: No laughing matter, tackles a common response by people to laugh off incontinence, accepting it as an inevitable part of childbirth or ageing, not a health issue requiring specialist treatment. 

The Continence Foundation has developed a double-sided A3 poster promoting the “no laughing matter” message, urging people to treat incontinence seriously and to seek help. The alternate side features the Foundation’s digital #leakface campaign, highlighting the after-effects of bladder leakage.

Our new poster is just one of many free resources that can assist you with World Continence Week activities. There are prizes for the best promotional activity or event, so make sure you order early
