© International Osteoporosis Foundation and Bone Health and Osteoporosis Foundation 2022

Most of the published epidemiology on osteoporosis is derived from White populations; still many countries have increasing ethno-culturally diverse populations, leading to gaps in the development of population-specifc efective fracture prevention strategies. We describe diferences in prevalent fracture and bone mineral density patterns in Canadians
of diferent racial/ethnic backgrounds.
