Worldwide uptake of FRAX

Worldwide uptake of FRAX
Worldwide uptake of FRAX
Summary: the worldwide uptake of FRAX is described.

Introduction: the aim of this report was to determine the usage of FRAX worldwide over a 1-year period from 1 May 2012.

Methods: the number of FRAX calculations from each country was assessed over a 1-year period and expressed as calculations per million of the population aged 50 years or more. Countries were colour coded according to usage to populate a world map.

Results: over the index year, there were estimated to be 2,391,639 calculations sourced from 173 counties. Uptake was high in North America, the Antipodes and most countries of Europe; intermediate in Latin America and the Middle East; and very low in Africa and much of South East Asia.

Conclusions: it is expected that the comparative data will encourage the development of new FRAX models and the uptake of FRAX into assessment guidelines
