Even before the pandemic, the care gap for osteoporosis was startlingly wide, with around two-thirds of people missing out on the treatment they need. NHS backlogs have widened that gap still further. In view of the scale and urgency of the care gap, for the duration of our four-year strategy, Breaking the Silence Strategy (2022-2026), the charity will be focusing its grants programme on pioneering studies which have a clear and tangible path to benefiting patients by helping to drive system change that can help close the osteoporosis care gap and reduce health inequalities.

The Royal Osteoporosis Society grants programme is overseen by our Research and Innovation Grants Assessment Panel, which is made up of scientific and lay members. You can find out more about the process of our grants round by downloading our research grants application overview.
