We are excited to announce the launch of FFN Portugal which occurred on November 27, 2023.

FFN Portugal is being led by the incoming president António Miranda, who is an Orthopaedic Surgeon.

As per the mandate of FFN, the leadership team is multidisciplinary, consisting of 16 members from 13 different areas of interest who are involved in the treatment of patients with fragility fractures.

- Development of the FFN Portugal communication strategy to engage and inform health care professionals across Portugal including a website, presence on social media and in the press

- Translation of FFN's manuals and publications to increase the resources available on best practice

- Increasing their national presence to increase knowledge uptake including attracting new members, involving institutions, policymakers, and stakeholders
