It does seem incredible that a disease that can be diagnosed and can be successfully treated is not a major health issue. We must do all we can to prevent, treat and ultimately cure this painful and life restricting disease.
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.
