The Asia-Pacific Regional Audit: Epidemiology, costs & burden of osteoporosis in 2013 (English edition)

Fractures are a heavy burden on health budgets in the region and improvement in fracture prevention and management is needed by implementing cost-effective evidence-based solutions.

The audit of 16 countries not only underscores the care gaps and future disease burden but also presents cost-effective evidence-based solutions. It is intended as a tool to catalyse action at the national health policy level and calls on health care professionals and medical authorities to diagnose and treat osteoporosis in a timely manner.
