Hungarian NAN of the BJD

  • Key projects in 2007

  • The National Musculoskeletal Health Program based on the data and recommendations of the BJD has been finalized and consensus conferences have been convened with participation of professional and patient societies. Emphasizing the importance and the burden is a very important task in Hungary, because musculoskeletal health and musculoskeletal medicine are not priorities in the Hungarian Health Program.

  • One of the main medical activities within the BJD was the continuation of the ECHO project. The ECHO project has been launched last year, and was presented on the NAN conference in Durban, South Africa. This program was developed for registering patients suffering low trauma fractures. The corresponding traumatologists referred the patients to the local OP Centers to confirm diagnosis of OP and start the suitable treatment. Almost 1400 patients have been registered in this project, in Hungary until now.

  • Under the umbrella of the Hungarian NAN, the National Hip and Knee Joint Prosthesis Register has been developed.

  • On the web-sites of the member societies, BJD sections have been established. Through these BJD sections all Hungarian professionals and visiting patients can be easily informed about BJD related news. Links to the involved homepages are the following:;;; Altogether more than 4.000 registered users - mostly healthcare professionals - are available through these web-sites.
