Osteoporis campaign in Bashkortostan

With support from the department of medicine and pharmaceutics at the Centre for Applied Communications (www.apcom.ru), the “Caution, osteoporosis” health campaign, which has already been implemented effectively in Chelyabinsk, Yekaterinburg, Kopeisk, and other cities in the Urals, is to roll out in Bashkortostan.

During April, the inhabitants of the Turkic republic will have the opportunity to attend a consultation with a specialist and to undergo a check for osteoporosis using densitometry equipment specially brought to Ufa.

To inform the public in the area about the campaign and to raise awareness of the disease, Apcom is using both print and electronic media, while posters have been put on display at medical establishments and pharmacies in Ufa, and information leaflets are being distributed to patients by doctors.

Osteoporosis is a progressive bone disease, causing brittleness.
