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

The 2nd Summit of CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) Osteoporosis Societies met in St. Petersburg on September 23, 2012 to review the status of osteoporosis in the region since the landmark IOF Eastern European & Central Asian Regional Audit of 2010. The delegates' signed appeal outlines five clear areas in which action must be taken in order to reduce the enormous socio-economic burden of osteoporosis and related fractures.

The Meeting was held under the auspices of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and with the participation of osteoporosis societies and medical doctors from the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Republic of Belarus, Republic of Moldova, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Five of these societies Russian Association on Osteoporosis, Ukraine Association on Osteoporosis, Armenian Osteoporosis Association, Belorussian Public Association "Overcome Osteoporosis Together" and Moldovan Anti-osteoporosis Association - are members of the IOF Committee of National Societies.

In 2010, representatives of these osteoporosis societies, together with colleagues from other 11 countries from the Eastern European and Central Asian Region, jointly prepared and issued the 'IOF Eastern European & Central Asian Regional Audit Epidemiology, costs and burden of osteoporosis in 2010'. The document demonstrated that osteoporosis is one of the major health problems throughout the region. According to the data reported by the authors of the Audit, the situation might be called threatening. By 2050, the population of the majority of CIS countries will have substantially decreased while the proportion of patients with osteoporosis fractures will have increased among those who are 50 years and over.

A growing problem compounded by lack of awareness and scarcity of diagnostic facilities:
