The 2nd World Bedwetting Day took place on the

24th of May 2016




What is WBD about and why is it needed?

World Bedwetting Day is initiated by a working group consisting of the International Children's Continence Society (ICCS) and the European Society for Paediatric Urology (ESPU).

The objective is to raise awareness that bedwetting is a common medical condition that can have a major impact on a family's quality of life.

It's time to take action because bedwetting can and should be treated!

For more information regarding World Bedwetting Day please see the official website linked below.
