The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) is a nongovernmental umbrella organization dedicated to the worldwide fight against osteoporosis, the disease known as the silent epidemic. IOF members include committees of scientific researchers, patient, medical and research societies and industry representatives from around the world. All share a common vision of a world without osteoporotic fractures. Launched in 1998 with the merger of the European Foundation for Osteoporosis (EFFO, founded in 1987) and the International Federation of Societies on Skeletal Diseases, IOF now represents 191 societies in 91 locations. http://www.iofbonehealth.org
