ICUD | Homepage. A number of Consultation and Consensus Meetings have been organized on prostate and bladder diseases since 1981 on the basis of a voluntary collaboration from international and national urological associations. These Consultations, supported by World Health Organization WHO and the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) in a non-official way, created the need for a global, official organization to foster and increase the potential to inform its worldwide network of international and national urological associations and the populations that they serve. The International Consultation on Urological Diseases (ICUD) was established as a scientific, international, non-profit association under Belgium law on June 28, 1994. The main reason for its foundation was the need to create an NGO working in association with the WHO and UICC.
