On behalf of Asian Federation Of Osteoporosis Societies (AFOS), it gives me great pleasure to welcome you warmly to the 5th Annual Scientific Meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The changing population demography and lifestyle in Asia have greatly increased the number of people at risk of osteoporosis. The scientific programme addresses common clinical problems and dilemmas. We have also invited key opinion leaders from around the region and the world to look at future directions of osteoporosis management, thus the theme 'Best Practices, Future Directions'.
The AFOS conference is fully intended to provide a platform for discussions and interaction so that together we can gain a better insight on osteoporosis and to advance research and collaboration across the region. From the laboratory bench to new therapeutic agents; from epidemiology to clinical outcome; from new ideas to fresh research data; there will be plenty to discuss and impart.
The Scientific Committee, with a wide representation of specialties, has done a great job in putting this programme together with great care and much thought. I would like to thank the sponsors and colleagues for encouraging us to push the agenda of osteoporosis forward.
Last but not least, the success of any conference depends on all of you. It is your participation and ideas that would move all of us forward with greater haste and purpose for the betterment of bone health in the region. I look forward to seeing all of you in Kuala Lumpur in October 2017.
