2020 is certainly a year of many healthcare challenges, across the globe. With the Corona virus pandemic sweeping the world, healthcare systems everywhere are being pushed to their limits.
As a long standing partner to healthcare, we want to recognise the extreme sacrifice and hard work that all healthcare professionals and keyworkers are going through at this time. Not only are they providing high levels of support in this unprecedented time, they are also continuing to care for those people living with incontinence.
World Continence Week was created by the International Continence Society (ICS) as an annual initiative aimed at raising awareness about incontinence related issues. At Essity we recognize that we have a responsibility to spark discussions and promote new solutions to improve the quality of life and the health and hygiene standards around the world.
During this current period of health challenges, one thing that remains important is the continuing need for hygiene practices and good quality care.
Incontinence, defined as the involuntary loss of urine or faeces, is a disease that is rarely spoken about. It affects approximately 400 million people globally and has a major impact on users’ and carers’ well-being and dignity, as well as on health care costs. Access to appropriate solutions not only improves the quality of life of those with incontinence, it also generates value for society.
