About 8 million bone fractures occur in the world every year due to osteoporosis. Attainment of SDG 3 and SDG 17 is essential to achieving good health and well-being. Dr Rubina Tahir.
According to an estimate, more or less 8 million bone fractures occur yearly due to osteoporosis. The increasing incidence of osteoporotic fractures and a lack of awareness of the disease in the community continue to increase the burden on the population. Professor Dr Rubina Tahir expressed these views in a seminar on the occasion of “World Osteoporosis Day”, organized by the Department of Pharmacy at Iqra University North Campus.
He said that this session’s main objectives were achieving SDG 3 and SDG 17 for good health and well-being. The event raised awareness about the risks and consequences of osteoporosis. Dr Rubina Tahir is a reproductive health expert and the pioneer of saline infusion sonography in Pakistan. Dr Tabinda Ashfaq, Dr Muhammad Imran, and others were also present.
