Our partnership in action

In 2012, TENA held a caregiving event in YueTan community, Xicheng District, China. It involved 70 participants from the media, directors of 26 communities, nurses from Beijing Nursing Association (BNA) and caregiving relatives. During the event, real-life stories of carers were presented, highlighting the experience of living with incontinence and the far-reaching impact it has on quality of life.
