Osteoporosis will remain as a major health challenge for Asians in the decades to come. We must work with the IOF to generate resources, lobby governments, and empower women in their fight against osteoporosis.
Osteoarthritis is a joint disorder characterized by swelling. A joint is an area of the body where two different bones meet. Joints are found in the knees, hips, fingers and other areas of the body that bend to ease movement. There are many types of arthritis, one of which is called osteoarthritis.

My biggest message today is to encourage women to take charge of their health. Don’t be an observer, be a participant, and don’t procrastinate about ANY of your checkups, including bone density tests.
The decision makers in the field of health politics are still not taking this widespread disease seriously enough despite its enormous impact on our society.
