All Party Parliamentary Group on Osteoporosis 

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Osteoporosis and Bone Health launched on 25 March 2021 to raise awareness of the condition and the importance of bone health among Parliamentarians and NHS leaders. The Royal Osteoporosis Society provides the Secretariat for the group.

“Causing over half a million broken bones every year, osteoporosis has a devastating personal, societal and financial impact, with many thousands of people suffering alone and in silence. This APPG is a huge step forward in breaking the silence and unlocking the seismic opportunities for prevention and early intervention.”
