Multinational Interstitial Cystitis Association (MICA)
- Patient Organisation
MICA was created in 2006 to encourage and support international cooperation between patients support groups in the field of painful uro-gynecological diseases such as Interstitial Cystitis, Overactive bladder (OAB), vulvodynia, chronic pelvic pain (CPP), Chronic prostatitis and diseases associated with these. First intended to be a worlwide umbrella association, it decided in 2009 to focus on cooperation between European countries and to set up regular meetings and concrete actions. MICA’s objectives are to advocate for better treatment throughout Europe for interstitial cystitis, better knowledge of the condition, and to encourage research and cooperation.
