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

hat osteoporosis has been recognized as a priority for health care systems in CIS countries.

New epidemiological study underway:

The governments of CIS and adjacent countries do not draw enough attention to the problem. Despite evidence that fractures resulting from osteoporosis pose a major public health burden, neither epidemiological nor health-economic studies that might encourage specialists to be engaged in prevention are being carried out.

In many countries there is still a complete lack of relevant statistics. That is why the Russian Association on Osteoporosis has initiated the multinational population-based study in the countries of the region "Epidemiological study of osteoporotic fractures in Eurasia (EVA)". The goal is to obtain the data on incidence of main osteoporotic fractures.

Summit participants sign Appeal requesting action:

Given the dire state of affairs, the participants of the Summit proposed that osteoporosis be recognized as a health priority at the state level, and that treatment and prevention strategies, as well as urgent surgical treatment for patients with hip fractures, be provided. An appeal with such proposals towards the governments and health ministries of CIS countries was signed by the summit participants presenting 10 countries.

The signed document calls for the following five measures to be taken:

  • Recognize osteoporosis as a socially important disease due to high incidence, socio-economic burden and medical consequences;

  • Organize the collection of official statistics on fragility fractures, including hip fractures;

  • Increase the proportion of patients with hip fractures who can get surgical care within the first days after the trauma this will reduce the high rate of mortality and disability;

  • Provide the population with widely available DXA and modern methods of treatment of osteoporosis, free of charge for pe
