Summit of osteoporosis experts from CIS countries issue 5-point call for action
Date:1/9/2013

stated that even at that time every third woman and every fourth man over 50 years had osteoporosis. The problem of osteoporosis in the population is worsening steadily due to longer life spans. Professor Lesnyak stated that an estimated 34 million Russian people are at risk for fractures associated with osteoporosis. Meanwhile, in the Russian Federation a hip fracture occurs every five minutes. "We carried out research among people aged over 50 and came to the conclusion that vertebral fractures are very common. We diagnosed fractures even in those who didn't suspect they had a problem," said Lesnyak. "Overall, nearly 10% of the population of Russia had vertebral fractures with no awareness of the problem and registration in the statistics."

The available data on osteoporosis points to an unfavorable prognosis: By 2035 the number of Russian people aged over 50 years suffering hip fracture will have increased almost two-fold, by 96% in women and 105% in men.

Ageing of the population and the low awareness of the problem of osteoporosis are distinguishing characteristics for other CIS countries as well. In Uzbekistan, it is predicted that by 2050, 40% (14 million) of the population will be 50 years and older, 12% (4.2 million) 70 years and older along with increasing the population up to 35 million people. Given the population growth in the Republic, by 2020 the number of people suffering from osteoporosis is predicted to increase to up to 250,000 people. In Uzbekistan, the incidence of osteoporotic fractures is also growing. According to the Research Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics of Uzbekistan, the main reason lies in lack of awareness of the problem among the population of the Republic. Furthermore, there are still difficulties in studying the problem of osteoporosis at a national level, including due to inadequate numbers of diagnostic equipment. In Uzbekistan, there are only 4 sonar and 5 DXA machines.
