IOF Capture the Fracture® Programme Announces New Governance
Capture the Fracture® (CTF) is a multi-stakeholder initiative, led by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), to facilitate the implementation of Post-Fracture Care (PFC) Coordination Programs, such as Fracture Liaison Services (FLS), for secondary fracture prevention.
Following an election process, the IOF announced the composition of the new Capture the Fracture® governance which welcomed 13 representatives from the six IOF regions including Dr. Famida Jiwa, President and CEO, Osteoporosis Canada, Canada.
This announcement follows a global call for candidatures which was initiated in March 2023.
During the World Congress on Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases (WCO-IOF-ESCEO) in Barcelona May 4 to 7, 2023, the new constituency of the CTF Steering Committee was formalized by the IOF Board of Governance.
The Committee includes members from all six IOF regions (Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and North America), together with representatives from the IOF Executive Committee.
Currently, the CTF network includes 835 FLS in 54 countries worldwide.
