Osteoporosis Action

Formerly "IOF News", Osteoporosis Action is published three times per year. Osteoporosis Action aims to motivate health policy officials and other decision-makers to place osteoporosis on the top of the health agenda. It highlights international advocacy efforts, regional news and IOF-member society projects – as well as showing the burden of the disease from a personal, economic and social stand point.

IOF thanks Servier for the generous, unrestricted grant which enables its publication.

The current and past issues of Osteoporosis Action and IOF News are available as PDF files below. Print issues may be obtained by subscription only.
