27 Apr OAFI NEEDS 12 PATIENTS SUFFERING FROM OSTEOPOROSIS FOR A PROJECT ON HEALTH CARE AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Osteoporosis is a disease that affects approximately 3 million people in Spain, and it is estimated that causes around 25.000 fractures a year. It is the most common chronic bone disease and its consequences can be very serious, causing, among others, fractures of the hip, femur and vertebrae, in addition to everything involved in such a recovery after the age of fifty, when the disease is most common.
This is the first project of its kind to be carried out in Spain, promoted by AECOSAR (Spanish Association with Osteoporosis and Arthrosis) and OAFI Foundation, with the aim of assessing which aspects of health care could be improved, what patients’ experience and preferences are like and, consequently, what their quality of life is like. The aim is also to ensure adherence to the treatment, which is crucial in a chronic disease such as this.
The project needs 12 patients affected by osteoporosis from different profiles and areas of Spain. Participation is voluntary, confidential and anonymous.

In OAFI Foundation we want to do our bit to raise awareness among the population, especially among osteoporosis patients who are not aware enough of the dangers of their disease until fractures occur. For this reason, we share with you an OAFI Radio program entirely dedicated to this disease, where we answer all possible doubts from the best specialists and testimonies.
