Incontinence – a public health issue to be dealt with using a life-course approach

On 18th of April, Alexandre Kalache addressed the plenary of the Global Incontinence Forum in Rome, calling for a life-course approach to incontinence. He also noted that in developing countries all risk factors are more common, as for instance badly treated chronic diseases and due to a lack of pre-natal care, multiple pregnancies and accelerated ageing. While incontinence continues to be treated as a taboo, it is of relevance to all – as we can be surrounded by family members or colleagues who suffer from incontinence and as we might develop incontinence ourselves.
