206 reasons. The campaign /
#206reasons is a campaign reminding people of the importance of bone health care to prevent osteoporosis and avoid brittle bone fractures. It is an initiative of the Hispanic Foundation for Osteoporosis and Bone Diseases (FHOEMO), which has been launched with the support of the Spanish Society for Bone Research and Mineral Metabolism (SEIOMM) and the patient association AECOSAR with collaboration of the biotechnology company Amgen and the biopharmaceutical company UCB.
Fragility fractures are preventable and that is why the campaign also focuses on the need to work together on the primary and secondary prevention of fractures to reduce the unnecessary suffering of people with risk factors and their high social and economic cost and healthcare burden on the health system.
