World Osteoporosis Day is celebrated on the 20th of October annually. It is a campaign which calls global action to improve bone health and prevent fractures from osteoporosis.
The campaign calls on the public to take early action in order to enjoy a good quality of life. Osteoporosis often is undiagnosed and untreated. By ‘closing the care gap’ through timely assessment and treatment, health professionals, government health authorities, and hospitals can work together to reduce the human and socioeconomic burden of fragility fractures.
