Doctors and researchers from across the Asia-Pacific gathered today for the opening of the International Osteoporosis Foundation's (IOF) 3rd Asia-Pacific Osteoporosis Meeting, taking place at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre until December 16, 2012.

The Deputy Minister of Health of Malaysia, YB Datuk Rosnah bt. Hj. Abd. Rashid Shirlin, welcomed the delegates from more than 60 nations. His Excellency Tun Dato' Seri Utama (Dr.) Haji Abdul Rahman bin Haji Abbas, Governor of Penang, was also present.
