NO MORE BROKEN BONES!
TAKE ACTION FOR PREVENTION, DIAGNOSIS & TREATMENT

WHAT IS OSTEOPOROSIS?

Osteoporosis is a disease which makes bones weak and fragile. This greatly increases the risk of breaking a bone even after a minor fall or bump. The disease has no obvious symptoms, so many people don’t know they have osteoporosis until they suffer a fracture. Fractures can be life-altering, causing pain, disability and loss of independence. That’s why it’s important to prevent osteoporosis!  

SCOPE 2021 summarises key indicators of the burden of osteoporosis and its management in the 27 member states of the European Union, as well as the UK and Switzerland (termed EU27+2).
