Abstract

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.
