Incontinence is more common than people think. Between 4 – 8% percent of the world's population are effected from some kind of urinary incontinence, in total around 400 million people. In Europe alone, up to 50 million people are affected, making it imperative to increase understanding and knowledge to better meet the needs of people experiencing incontinence.

Prevalence increases with age

The probability for incontinence issues increases with age, and the condition can also be a result of factors such as obesity, childbirth or neurological damage. On our education page, you can find more information and a guide on the different types of incontinence.
