World Osteoporosis Day (WOD), on October 20 each year, marks a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis.

WOD aims to make osteoporosis and fracture prevention a global health priority by reaching out to health-care professionals, the media, policymakers, patients, and the public at large.

Key messages of World Osteoporosis Day 2020:

• Osteoporosis is the underlying cause of painful, debilitating and life-threatening broken bones – known as fragility fractures.

• Osteoporosis is a growing global problem: worldwide, fractures affect one in three women and one in five men over the age of 50.

• Osteoporosis affects families – family members often bear the burden of care

• If one of your parents had osteoporosis or hip fracture, this may increase your own risk of developing the disease. Take the IOF Osteoporosis Risk Check to identify your risk factors.

• At risk? Be sure to request a bone health assessment – take early action for prevention!
Bone health concerns the entire family - ensure your family maintains a bone-healthy lifestyle.
