Did you know that osteoporosis accounts for more days in the hospital than breast cancer, heart attack, diabetes & other diseases?
Worldwide, millions of people at high risk of fractures remain unaware of the underlying disease because there are no symptoms, until a bone fracture.
World Osteoporosis Day, marked on October 20 each year, is dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and related musculoskeletal disease.
The ‘THAT’S OSTEOPOROSIS’ tagline featured in this year’s campaign draws attention to the serious impact of the condition. Take this day to learn about the essential actions you can start to take to build a set of healthy bones.
