Abstract: After the publication of our report that established the guidelines for the management of fragility fractures in Lebanon four years ago, many major hospitals adhered to the recommendations and witnessed an important reduction in fragility fracture morbidity and mortality as well as an increased awareness of the secondary prevention of fractures. However, this adherence was not noted on all the Lebanese territories and there is still much work to do, especially to establish a Lebanese fragility fracture registry and a Lebanese National Hip Fracture Database, and to diffuse the guidelines nationwide by making the Lebanese Ministry of Health, the Lebanese Order of Physicians and the Lebanese Orthopedic Society adopt them.
