It affects over 400 million people worldwide and is common in both men and women. It can cause considerable stress, depression, insomnia, anxiety, sexual & social problems, and just generally has a negative impact on the patient’s quality of life.”

“Many risk factors might aggravate OAB symptoms like advancing age, being overweight, urinary tract infections, low oestrogen levels after menopause, nervous system diseases, Diabetes, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prior pelvic surgery, Multiple Medications like Diuretics & Sedatives,” he added.
Speaking on urinary incontinence, which can be a symptom of OAB, Dr. Farahat stated, “In the Middle East, the overall prevalence of urinary incontinence ranges from 20.3% to 54.8%. In Qatar, it is 20.6%, and in the United Arab Emirates, it is 20.3%. In Saudi Arabia, the prevalence of urinary continence in Jeddah and Riyadh cities was estimated to be 41.4% and 29%, respectively. There is no need to shy away from this condition. Consulting your doctor at any stage will reduce discomfort and help you lead a healthy normal life.”

Dr. Mohammed Khalil, CEO of SAJA Pharmaceuticals, said, “Our long-term goal is to promote accessible education and medicine while ensuring that we can reach diversified therapeutic areas, among which is urology. Through our partnership with the AAU, we hope that this awareness program and others in the future will create long-term awareness of key urinary health issues that are commonly affecting people’s quality of life.”
AAU and SAJA have collaborated in the past to promote awareness about various urological health issues and following their MoU, have pledged to continue organizing similar programs in the future. 

Mr. Obaid Saeed Alkindi, Director of Khorfakkan Hospital, said, “Urinary incontinence is a massive health problem that we hope to shed a light on with this program.
