In the last 30 years, the incidence of hip fracture in Hong Kong Chinese has increased by 300% 3.
With the large aging population in Asia, it is projected that more than half of all fractures in the World will occur in Asia. A large proportion of these fractures will occur in China4.
Research has shown that one third of Hong Kong Chinese women suffer from osteoporosis3. Also, one third of elderly women and around 20% of men have one or more vertebral fractures5.
