IOF calls on European citizens to stand tall and speak out for their bones
Date:10/14/2008

As Chair of the EU Osteoporosis Consultation Panel, Prof Juliet Compston urged "scientists, physicians, policymakers, advocates and patients and their families to use the information in this report to identify issues that need attention now. The active support of all EU citizens and their governments is essential if the important goals which remain outstanding are to be realized"

Members of the EU Osteoporosis Consultation Panel, comprised of scientific and health policy experts from all 27 member states who contributed to the report, MEPs who form the European Parliament Osteoporosis Interest Group, and members of the media heard about other global World Osteoporosis Day campaigns that seek to mobilize stakeholders to Stand Tall, and Speak Out.

Speakers from across Europe joined together for the 3rd IOF Women Leaders Roundtable, sharing their stories and encouragement to citizens of all ages to take control of their life by making healthy lifestyle decisions now that pay huge dividends down the road. Working in partnership with national osteoporosis societies, which exist in every EU member state, can create a coordinated voice for action, influencing governments to listen.

EU Commissioner for Health, Androulla Vassiliou, one of the Roundtable speakers, said that "Healthcare in the EU is complex and challenging. Among the Commission's key priorities in improving healthcare are to foster good health in an ageing Europe; to reduce health inequalities inside the Union; and to support dynamic health systems by encouraging cross-border cooperation and the creation of centres of excellence. Today's meeting is a very positive step in identifying how we achieve these goals".

Other Roundtable participants included:

  • Susan Hampshire, film and theatre actress from the UK
  • Barbara Miklič Trk, wife of the President of the Republic of Slovenia
  • Anna Molinari, fashion designer from Italy (regrettably unable to attend
