  • Epidemiology of Fractures: East vs. West
  • The Asian Audit
  • Bone Quality and Architecture
  • Fall Prevention and Rehabilitation
  • FRAX and Its Clinical Implications
  • Vitamin D Deficiency Across Asia
  • Exercise and Bone
  • Calcium, Other Nutrients and Bone
  • Who to Treat, When to Start, What Drug and How Long?
  • Corticosteroid Induced Osteoporosis: Practical approaches
  • What's New on the Horizon in Therapy?
  • Fracture Prevention in Individuals and Populations in Asia: Learnings from the past decade and future directions


  • Orthopaedic Roundtable
  • Diagnostic Roundtable


  • Oestrogens and Bone in Women and Men
  • Vertebroplasty / Kyphoplasty
  • Osteoporosis in Men
  • Economics of Effective Osteoporosis Treatment
  • Bone Markers in Clinical Practice


There will be an opportunity for 30 oral presentations, selected from the best submitted abstracts.


A certain number of slots will be reserved for industry-sponsored symposia.


IOF, in conjunction with the Osteoporosis Society of Singapore, will hold a Patient Forum, just prior the opening of the meeting. This will be an excellent opportunity for patients and their families to interact with bone experts form the region. On Sunday morning a bone health exercise event will be held, finishing with a bone-friendly breakfast.

We look forward to welcoming you to Singapore!
