Men get osteoporosis too!

The 2014 World Osteoporosis Day campaign focuses on osteoporosis in men, addressing the misconception that men don't get osteoporosis.

This European launch was held at the University of Ghent in Belgium where Professor Jean-Marc Kaufman presented the issue (having dedicated over 20 years to men and osteoporosis), Dr Stefan Goemaere presented the statistics for Belgium from a recent survey conducted by IOF, and Dr Charanjit Jagait presented the campaign and the international efforts for raising awareness to the issue.

A joint event by the International Osteoporosis Foundation and the Belgian Bone Club.
