Although the significance of osteoporosis is well known worldwide, the number of patients undergoing therapy for this disease corresponds to a fraction only of the optimal proportion. In many countries, patients at a high risk of fracture - including those who have in fact sustained a typical fracture - do not receive therapy at all. Unawareness of the population, difficulties in accessing specialist care, as well as insufficient communications all contribute to the fact that a substantial percentage of patients discontinue drug therapy prematurely. Using information from a survey conducted in a club of osteoporotic patients, this paper discusses the achievements and substantiates the existence of patient associations, as well as emphasizes the need for establishing new patient clubs in Hungary.
