SOSFA submission to the National Preventive Health Strategy consultation
Updated: Jul 27, 2021

SOSFA was broadly supportive of the Strategy in concept and the principles it establishes, but believe the omission of osteoporosis and secondary fractures as a Focus Area is a key omission given their large bur preventable burden on the health system.
