At the IOF World Wide Conference of Osteoporosis Patient Societies in Bangkok, Thailand on September 30, 2005 the Taiwanese Osteoporosis Society was awarded an IOF-Novartis Osteoporosis Education Grant to the value of USD 10,000. The award-winning project, called “Osteoporosis Educational Materials for the Public,” includes a campaign that will consist of two main parts. The first includes educational materials such as booklets for health care professionals and the public as well as a DVD to teach the public about osteoporosis through interactive games. Second, an essay competition will be held once a year. This will allow people to express their knowledge of osteoporosis and write about stories around them that are related to osteoporosis.
