Latin America Guidelines

This page features osteoporosis guidelines from the Latin America region. International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) does not officially endorse national or regional guidelines. This is because osteoporosis prevalence and aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of fractures are country or region-specific. There may be multiple guidelines from any one country or region.

References are available here. Where available a link to the full text of a guideline is provided.

If your country or region has issued osteoporosis guidelines which are not included here, or if updated guidelines are available, please contact us.
