Brazilian Society of Osteoporosis (SOBRAO)
Special women's health session in Rio de Janeiro's parliament planned for WOD
A special session on Women's health, including osteoporosis, will be held in the local parliament of Rio de Janeiro World Osteoporosis Day. Overall, osteoporosis advocacy in Brazil has grown in strength with Prof. Rubem Ledermann, IOF Board Member and Mrs. Regina Prado, a high-profile Roundtable member, pushing for action on behalf of osteoporosis patients.
A great step forward was taken in July 2002 when the Brazilian Ministry of Health approved the 'National Consensus of Osteoporosis' treatment guidelines resulting in the addition of osteoporosis to the reimbursement list.
