To celebrate Urology Week (26-30 August), HealthUnlocked have officially launched a brand new online community dedicated to cystitis and overactive bladder (OAB) conditions.
Billions of people across the world are affected by urology conditions – within Europe around 10 per cent of daily medical care involves urology and in the US, 33 million Americans have an OAB and about 35 per cent of men and women in the United States live with OAB symptoms.
Urology conditions are a much discussed concern within HealthUnlocked communities and the new space will compliment this and provide a dedicated place for people with bladder and cystitis health questions to come together and support one another.
The community is supported by the charity, Cystitis and Overactive Bladder (COB) Foundation. They have been supporting and offering advice to people with bladder conditions for over 20 years. The new community will bring together people who have bladder questions or a diagnosed condition, allowing them to discuss, compare or talk about their experiences.
We expect giving people to be able to better manage their condition, feel more supported and in charge of their own health, alongside understanding they are not alone in what they are going through, by using the online platform.
Visit the community.
To celebrate the official launch of the new community, the first five people to tweet a link to it and include our ‘@healthunlocked’ twitter handle will win a HealthUnlocked t-shirt.
