Our Campaign Story

ends 27 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM

$10 buys 2 cups of bubble tea. With incontinence one might think twice before buying. Is incontinence just inconvenient or does it point to more serious issues? We don't talk about incontinence openly.

1 in 7 Singaporeans males, 1 in 3 Singaporeans, 1 in 2 women above 60 has incontinence. Yet 59% of ladies who walked into a local hospital in 2017 do not seek treatment due to stigma & denial.

The Society for Continence, SG is bringing greater awareness on this issue to advocate living a quality life. The #LivingQualityLife campaign is championed by SFCS to regain quality living.

The campaign aims to
1. debunk myths ( Eg: Incontinence is NOT part of ageing)
2 remove stigma of the condition
3. recommend early intervention
4. have good knowledge of the condition
5. seek appropriate help
6. Be informed of resources and help available

Incontinence can also be the signal to highlight other underlying conditions in our body that requires attention. The communication between sufferers and the healthcare professionals is highly encouraged for appropriate diagnosis.

Caregivers need to empathise and have good knowledge to manage this condition with understanding, hence regaining dignity and removing stigma from the people they care for.

SFCS is creating
1. 30 sets of educational kits
2. training trainers and facilitators to conduct trainings across Singapore
3. 4 series of training online videos to share

Please support us!
