The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) is commited to addressing the local needs of regions worldwide. This includes the development of of programmes for five IOF geographic regions as well as the publication of landmark regional epidemiological audits.
IOF's regional osteoporosis audits assess current and projected disease burden, and identify gaps in knowledge and care, relevant to osteoporosis in that region. The audits serve to:
- raise awareness among policy makers, media and the public - at both national and regional level.
- assess current and projected disease burden, and identify gaps in knowledge and care, relevant to osteoporosis in that region.
- underscore the scarcity of data in some countries, and the need for large population-based cohorts, national databases and registries to accurately assess major osteoporosis outcomes.
