History

In 1995, the National Association For Continence (NAFC) joined with the American Foundation for Urologic Disease (AFUD) and others to create a functional Bladder Health Council to orchestrate the first ever Bladder Health Week. It was subsequently moved to the second full week in November.

Every year since 1995, NAFC has directed activities and marshaled publicity around Bladder Health Week, including a tour featuring Olympic gold medalist Mary Lou Retton. Now years later, NAFC is proud to announce the Bladder Health Awareness campaign to encourage individuals to talk to their friends, loved ones and health care professionals about bladder health.

NAFC launched this website, a Facebook page, Twitter account, a YouTube channel and a Pinterest account to promote bladder health education, awareness and advocacy. These new multi-media tools are dedicated to people with bladder health issues and their caregivers who are looking to connect with health care professionals and each other.
