Foundation For The Awareness Of Osteoporosis in Nigeria is a member society of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF).
As an organization, we are committed to the advocacy and improved awareness of osteoporosis and other common musculoskeletal diseases in our environment in Nigeria where it is believed that Osteoporosis is non-existent; yet people are fracturing upon flimsy injury or spontaneously.
We encourage research in osteoporosis and other related bone diseases as well as training of members.
Our organisation looks forward to helping prevent occurrence of fragility fractures in our people. For people who have already fractured, we hope to help stop at one fracture. It is our desire to turn around the diet of our people to eat balanced meals especially bone healthy meals using our local foods.
