World Bedwetting Day 2019

Tuesday 28th May

World Bedwetting Day 2019

Tuesday 28th May 2019 is the fifth year for World Bedwetting Day

Bedwetting is now a recognised medical condition from aged 5 years. Studies have identified that left untreated bedwetting can have a serious detrimental effect on the child’s self-esteem, emotional well-being and day time functioning, including school and social performance. Also, the impact on the child and their family is often underestimated and trivialised.

The International Children’s Continence Society (ICCS) and the European Society for Paediatric Urology (ESPU) launched the first World Bedwetting Day (WBD) in 2015. This year will be the fourth consecutive year that the day will be marked globally and it will take place on Tuesday 28th May 2019. The initiative will continue to raise awareness among the public and healthcare professionals around this common medical condition.

Within the UK this years WBD will focus on empowering parents and is supported by information and resources.
