Urology is an important medical discipline for men, women and children due to the variety and frequency of urologic diseases-a fact which is unknown to the majority of the population. In 2016, the "triple F" campaign was initiated in order to inform about both the role of urology and the importance of timely urologic investigations as well as prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-based early examination. With the Roth brothers as the face of the campaign, a homepage was created with information about the main important urologic diseases. Flyers and posters for physicians and their patients were sent to 3500 urologists, a urologist search tool for patients with so far 2200 registered urologists is available on the homepage, etc. Further activities using social media are planned with the objective of increasing participation of German urologists and their patients.
