Second Middle East & Africa Osteoporosis Meeting to take place in Jordan
Date:5/11/2012

The Middle East region is expecting a demographic explosion in the number of people over the age of 50 in the coming decades. By 2020 it is expected that 25% of the population will be over the age of 50 and by 2050 this will rise to 40%.

This is a warning call for health authorities and medical professionals who must be prepared to cope with a dramatic rise in age-related chronic diseases such as osteoporosis.

In response to the need for more regional research and health professional education in osteoporosis, the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the Pan Arab Osteoporosis Society (PAOS) will be staging the 2nd Middle East & Africa Osteoporosis Meeting and 6th Pan Arab Osteoporosis Congress PAOC'6. The joint meeting will take place from September 27 to October 1, 2012 at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre, Dead Sea, Jordan. The Meeting will be held in partnership with the Jordanian Osteoporosis Prevention Society (JOPS), Jordanian Physicians Osteoporosis Society (JPOS) and the Palestinian Osteoporosis Prevention Society (POPS).

Judy Stenmark, CEO of IOF commented, "In countries such as Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria, the number of hip fractures is rising and projected to quadruple by 2050. It is therefore essential that health professionals learn about the latest clinical advances in the prevention, diagnosis and management of osteoporosis and fragility fractures. We also encourage clinicians and investigators to publish their research abstracts as this is an excellent opportunity to showcase regional research at an international scientific forum."
