World Osteoporosis Day is observed annually on October 20th and marks the beginning of a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and related musculoskeletal diseases. For 2014, the focus is on the fact that men can get osteoporosis even though it is often thought of as a woman’s disease. Led by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), the observance generates worldwide media and assists with public awareness campaigns organized by more than 200 national osteoporosis patient and medical societies from around the world with activities in over 90 countries.
