Worldwide approximately one in five men over the age of 50 years will break a bone due to Osteoporosis..

Around 250 000 men in Australia have Osteoporosis, and men account for 30% of all fractures that occur in people over the age of 50. Men generally develop Osteoporosis later than women and most cases go undetected even after a fracture.
