German Green Cross promotes osteoporosis awareness:

The German Green Cross (DGK), together with the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), has developed a risk-check questionnaire to support the diagnosis of osteoporosis and for use as a public information tool. As bone loss in women can begin as early as 25, they are a particular cause for concern, says the IOF. The reason for the initiative, claims the DGK, is that, whereas 48% of women in France are aware of the risks, as are 42% of the women in Spain, in Germany this figure is only 23%. Accompanying the questionnaire is a brochure containing information about preventative measures against contracting the disease as well as methods of early diagnosis and available treatments.
