National Bone Health Alliance
The National Bone Health Alliance (NBHA) is a public-private partnership that brings together the expertise and resources of partners from the non-profit, public and for-profit sectors.
The NBHA is a platform that allows all voices in the bone health community to harmonize to deliver clear, concise messages about bone health by facilitating ongoing dialogue among interested individuals and organizations engaged in bone health activities and identifying shared priorities and projects that can become reality through pooled funding.
NBHA is developing three initial projects: a secondary fracture prevention initiative, public and health professional awareness campaign, and bone turnover marker standardization project. In addition, NBHA serves as an advocate for topics important to bone health, most notably Vitamin D, Calcium, dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) reimbursement and utilization and the long-term use of bisphosphonates and other therapies.
The members of the Alliance are working from a shared vision: to improve the overall health and quality of life of all Americans by enhancing their bone health.
The NBHA’s areas of focus include:
- Promote bone health and prevent disease
- Improve diagnosis and treatment
- Enhance research, surveillance and evaluation
