WCW 2016 Fact Poster

Our Mission

The Federation is dedicated to promoting worldwide the interests of sufferers of incontinence and related pelvic floor disorders. The WFIP provides its individual member associations with the most comprehensive and up-to-date information, guidelines, and educational resources. It seeks global cooperation and consensus via advocacy, public health education, and contact with official and scientific bodies and other patient advocacy groups.

Call To Action

  • Developing international guidelines for patients in preventive, lifestyle measures to reduce risks of incontinence and when to seek help for symptoms;
  • Elevating the visibility of WFIP; and
  • Mentoring to give life to new patient advocacy groups in countries without a patient voice.


The WFIP is mostly comprised of patient advocacy organizations, though doctors, non-government organizations, and non-commercial entities are welcome to become members of the WFIP.
