Capture the Fracture®

Capture the Fracture® (CTF)  is a multi-stakeholder initiative launched by the International Osteoporosis Foundation in 2012. The initiative aims to drive changes at the local and international levels, so that secondary fracture prevention becomes a global reality. The program sets global best practices for Post-Fracture Care Coordination Programs such as Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) in its Best Practice Framework. This serves as a benchmark tool to which clinics and hospitals can adhere and aspire to and through which they can receive international recognition on the Capture the Fracture® Global Map of Best Practice . The CTF program has a diverse set of tools that provides essential resources and documentation to drive quality improvement in FLS. It also offers mentorship programs that support development and sustainability of FLS at the local level.

Capture the Fracture® (CTF) Partnership

Capture the Fracture® Partnership

This first-of-its-kind IOF initiative is supported by Amgen and UCB in collaboration with the University of Oxford. The long-term program, officially announced on June 16th, 2020, focuses on five key pillars of action - Policy, Coalition, Mentorship, Scalable Solutions and Digitals Tools - across 17 countries in Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. The Partnership’s key objectives are to:

•    Foster the development and implementation of new CTF initiatives.
•    Double the number and improve the quality of existing FLS programs by the end of 2022.
•    Reduce the number of hip and vertebral fractures due to osteoporosis by 25% by 2025.
