Australian Bladder Foundation Grants

The Australian Bladder Foundation (ABF) has been established to promote the work of the Continence Foundation of Australia to build healthier communities. The aim of the ABF is to raise vital funds to ensure the continued development of research to assist people with bladder and bowel dysfunction and incontinence in Australasia.

ABF grant rounds support advances in knowledge that provide direct, tangible benefits relating to:

  • Category 1: Epidemiology of a defined population at high risk
  • Category 2: Translating research into practice in the areas of disability, aged care or mental health
  • Category 3: Urinary incontinence (for the Richard Millard Award).
