A Call to Action


Published 8/29/22
Bone Health Call to Action

As the United States population ages, the burden of fractures across the country is expected to rise. However, through the implementation of key policy measures spanning prevention, research, detection, and treatment, the U.S. health care system could see tremendous benefits that lower health care costs and improve patient outcomes.

In the Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR)’s commitment to raising awareness about women’s bone health and osteoporosis and driving policy change to improve women’s bone health outcomes across the lifespan, SWHR published Promoting Bone Health Through Policy: A Call to Action. This call to action is intended to serve as a roadmap outlining key areas of policy needed to improve the bone health of women from childhood through adulthood.
