The document calls on the legislative and executive authorities in Lithuania to draw attention to the problem of osteoporosis by:

Recognizing that osteoporosis is a public health priority

Facilitating access to bone mineral density scans for people with osteoporosis risk factors.

Facilitating access to treatment before the first fracture for people with osteoporosis and expand possibilities for treating osteoporosis with fracture

Improving the financial possibilities of the largest social osteoporosis risk group - elderly people - for diagnosis and treatment.
