The Fragility Fracture Network (FFN) is a global organisation, which was founded in order to create a multidisciplinary network of experts for improving treatment and secondary prevention of fragility fractures.
The FFN mission and vision underline this and are the foundation for all decisions taken. The FFN believes that useful policy change can only happen at a national level and multidisciplinary national coalitions are the most effective way to achieve this. Hence the FFN acts as a global template for creating national alliances in as many countries as possible.
