Dear Continence Community, it is my pleasure to welcome you to this 8th edition of World Continence Week (WCW) dedicated to providing a forum and supportive platform for the countless millions around the world who suffer from (urinary and faecal) incontinence.
World Continence Week is traditionally a weeklong series of physical in- person events across the globe. However, given the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the Executive Council of WFIPP has recently decided to add this virtual World Continence Week initiative in the form of an online platform which we hope you will find both informative, supportive and entertaining, as well as appealing to everyone.
We want to celebrate this week by recognizing all the organizations, societies, associations and professionals who work tirelessly to provide the much-needed support for people suffering from this condition. Thank you for all your hard work and for your support in helping to raise public awareness about incontinence throughout the world and helping to dispel the many taboos and stigmas still very prevalent when it comes to discussing and treating this burdensome condition.
We have prepared a themed agenda for each day of the week in which you will find information and tools that we believe will be very useful, interesting as well as ‘attractive’. We encourage you to please share the information and tools with your family, friends and acquaintances and professional healthcare providers so that together we can all give greater visibility to this condition and help more patients improve their quality of life.
Thank you for your attention and participation and wishing you a great Sneak Peek Week .
Mary Lynne Van Poelgeest-Pomfret
