The Charity is dedicated to reducing the incidence of Osteoporosis and promoting good bone health.
Osteoporosis is a condition that affects the inside of bones. It causes bones to become fragile, so they break more easily. It is called the silent disease because there are no signs or symptoms prior to a person breaking (fracturing) bones. The effects of undiagnosed/untreated osteoporosis can be devastating, and therefore the prevention and early detection of this disease is so important.
The Irish Osteoporosis Society is calling on you to support the Irish Osteoporosis Society, by signing our Irish Osteoporosis Charter.
The aims of this charter are the following;
1. To prioritise the prevention of osteoporosis throughout Ireland, starting from childhood
2. The diagnosis rate be significantly increased, in order that less people lose their independence, from a disease that is preventable and treatable in the majority of people.
3. That medical treatments are made available to patients with bone loss or who are at high risk of fractures, in a timely manner.
