There is indeed one thing I have learnt – that an accurate diagnosis, which is relatively simple, can save women from a lot of suffering, fractures and emotional damage.
The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) is a global movement for change. Through our national societies we are active around the world raising public awareness of bone, muscle and joint health. Initiatives include the organization of World Osteoporosis Day (October 20), the Capture the Fracture campaign, and outreach projects such as snap! the breaking spine.
