English Abstract

Background: Osteoporosis is the most prevalent bone metabolic disease and a common disease in the population. Considering the high prevalence of osteoporosis in women, this study is conducted to assess female students’ awareness of osteoporosis in Ardabil.

By simple random sampling, 150 female students (including medical and non-medical students) were selected from Ardabil universities and then collected data were analyzed by statistical methods in SPSS.16. Results: Overall 10.7% of students (16 people) had a good, 60.7% (91 people) had moderate and 28.7% (43 people) a poor awareness of osteoporosis. Conclusions: Results showed that students do not have a proper awareness about osteoporosis. Therefore it seems necessary to provide some educational interventions to promote community awareness for osteoporosis prevention, especially in young girls.
