Why is World Osteoporosis Day celebrated?

International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) was organized. Around the world with the activities in 90 countries, the world osteoporosis day campaign accompanied by those communities events as well as the local campaigns by the national osteoporosis patient societies from around the world.

The Past

On October 20, 1996, the day was launched by the UK’s National osteoporosis society and the European Commission gave their support. The IOF organized awareness since 1997. In the years 1988 and 1999, the World Health Organization (WHO) acted as they sponsored World Osteoporosis Day.  The day around the world marked the launch of an age’s long campaign that raised awareness of the disease like the osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. The campaigns featured specific themes in the year 1999.

An individual’s bones become fragile to the extent that they can easily break. The condition is such that it makes an individual’s bones weak. This disease leads to frequent fractures and these can have ruinous effects.

The UK’s osteoporosis society tried to bring policymakers, professionals, and the common public together in order to raise awareness around this disease and to create a health priority. It educates the netizens on the importance of being tested on a daily basis for the diagnosis of osteoporosis at an initial stage.
