Campaign Globally

The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) is a global movement for change. Through our national societies we are active around the world raising public awareness of bone, muscle and joint health. Initiatives include the organization of World Osteoporosis Day (October 20), the Capture the Fracture campaign, and outreach projects such as snap! the breaking spine.     

Our Bone Health Advocates

Dr. Kiran Bedi, the first woman to join the Indian Police Service, is an award-winning advocate for prison and police reform and among the most admired women in India

As police officers we have a duty to work for a secure environment. As individuals we have a similar duty to keep our health nourished. The future of India will be based on developing a generation of strong women with strong bones, which is why I’m promoting this mission to fight against osteoporosis. I plea that all women take responsibility for their bone health and learn about their osteoporosis risk factors to prevent rather than lament. Time is of essence.
