The Swedish government has agreed to provide SKr12 million ($1.2 million) for 12 projects aimed at improving conditions for people with mobility problems and other socially disadvantaged groups. The money comes from the state's general inheritance fund (Allmanna Arvsfond), which is financed with the money of Swedes who die without leaving a will and no obvious inheritor. Among those to receive financial support is the medical aids institute in Vallingby which will get SKr1.9 million to provide information on the availability of incontinence aids. The funds will also be used to carry out an evaluation of incontinence products and to monitor laboratory development procedures. Figures from the institute show that urinary incontinence affects some half a million people in Sweden.
