There has been a recent change in the name of WFIPP.

The new acronym WFIPP stands for World Federation for Incontinence and Pelvic Problems.

This to reflect the updated Statutes and also compliance with the new regulations in Italy where WFIPP is currently registered.

But nothing has changed in our determination and drive to raise awareness about continence issues and of course look after the                                            interests of patients and their famillies throughout the world.

Anyone can participate--just log on to Twitter at 13:00 on 4 June
