World Continence week 14th – 20th June

This World Continence Week (21 to 27 June), join the call to support more than one million men around Australia who live with incontinence. The Continence Foundation of Australia is launching BINS4Blokes – and you can get involved.

BINS4Blokes is an Australia-wide awareness and advocacy campaign promoting the installation of incontinence bins in male public toilet facilities.

Incontinence affects 1 in 10 men in Australia, of all ages.

Did you know that many male public toilets do not have a disposal bin for men to place their continence products? This leaves men to carry used products with them or feel stressed about how they’ll throw them out. A lack of options stops men with incontinence from going out to exercise, shop and simply enjoy life.


Bowel Cancer Awareness Month 

 June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month - Bowel Cancer Australia's signature event to raise awareness of Australia's second deadliest cancer and funds for the leading community-funded charity dedicated to prevention, early diagnosis, research, quality treatment and the best care for everyone affected by bowel cancer. Bowel cancer claims the lives of 101 Australians every week (5,255 people a year) - but it's one of the most treatable types of cancer if found early.  While the risk of bowel cancer increases significantly with age, the disease doesn't discriminate, affecting men and women, young and old. 293 Australians will be diagnosed with bowel cancer this week (15,206 people a year).
