This year's World Continence Week is June 19-25. The 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.
