To the Editor: In the December 16, 1998,
issue, JAMA published an excellent Patient Page on urinary
incontinence.1 Almost simultaneously, the American
Urological Association (AUA) was launching a comprehensive long-term
public awareness campaign on female incontinence.
One of the biggest problems about female incontinence is that so
many women fail to seek treatment—either because of embarrassment or
because they mistakenly believe that effective treatment modalities do
not exist. To address this situation, the AUA developed and initiated
its public awareness effort.
