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.
