Guide to the formation of national Fragility Fracture Networks

The rationale for establishing national FFNs

The global population is currently ageing at an unprecedented rate [1]. A direct consequence of this “longevity miracle” will be an explosion in the incidence of chronic diseases which afflict older people.
In response to this challenge, policymakers throughout the world need to develop and implement strategies that will ensure older people can continue to live healthy, happy and fulfilling lives. These strategies must minimise the burden imposed by chronic disease on individuals, their families, health systems and national finances.
