New challenges about Incontinence and Chronic Pelvic Pain
WFIP is delighted to announce that this year they will celebrate their first ever multistakeholder WFIP FORUM in Europe. It will be held in Barcelona, at the Hospital San Pau. WFIP is expecting a participation of some 100 delegates, this on a first come first served basis. Participants will include WFIP delegate members, HCPs, invited guests, sponsors and other stakeholders.
This showcase event has been inspired by a compelling wish by the WFIP Board to raise awareness of issues such as incontinence, bladder weakness, pelvic pain and related conditions. The date of the Forum has been carefully selected to precede World Continence Week 2019 17th to 23rd June 2019.
It will provide excellent networking opportunities for patient organizations, irrespective of whether or not they are WFIP members, and professionals to meet other patient advocates from around the world. It is also an opportunity to hear state of the art presentations on incontinence and chronic pelvic pain issues. WFIP will also present itself as a federation of national patient organizations and will of course highlight our recent and upcoming activities. A prime opportunity in a prime location to exchange views with clinicians, pelvic floor therapists, patient representatives and industry.  An opportunity to ask questions, contribute actively to the debates and understand just what WFIP is aiming to achieve in the upcoming period.
There will be an adjacent Exhibition Area with ample opportunity for participants to visit and interact with national and international patient organizations and industry represented.
WFIP is delighted to have attracted a great line–up of eminent speakers on topics, which are the motivating factor to hold this event. It is very much a multistakeholder event, the first of its kind, and expectations are high. You can find the programm here.
All participants are invited to register for the FORUM to learn more about recent updates in the incontinence and pelvic pain community and meet patients from around the world.

Since its foundation in 1992, EHF (European Headache Federation), a non-profit organization, has sought to improve the life of those affected by headache in Europe. To do so, EHF dedicates its efforts to improving awareness of headache disorders and their impact amongst governments, health care providers and consumers across Europe.
The 13th European Headache Federation Congress will be held in the Athens Concert Hall, “Megaron”, on May 30th - June 1st 2019.
Committed to the European Headache Federation mission of Science and Education through Renovation, this European Congress aims to improve the life of those affected by headache in Europe by giving light to the new scientific evidence on therapeutics, comorbidities and pathogenesis of headache. Amidst a plethora of new migraine treatments that have never reached this density, power and precision before, new alliances linking efforts guided by both sufferers and therapists lead to astonishing horizons. The Congress is focused on the detailed message identification and clarification of all novel treatments including those targeting the CGRP and 5- HT1F pathways, treatments targeting the PACAP signaling as well as neurostimulation trials. All the aspects of headache nosology will be covered with emphasis on the patient’s journey within this spectrum.
You can find additional information on the congress website.
