More than 1.1 million (25%) of New Zealanders experience bladder or bowel control problems. In total, incontinence costs our country around $8.05 billion every year. Broken down, this accounts for $7,000 per person with incontinence per year in health, loss of productivity, informal carer costs and other costs.
New Zealand Continence Association is a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping people with bladder and bowel incontinence. The New Zealand Continence Association provides professional and public education and promotes research into incontinence and related problems to improve genitourinary health.
