Project Detail

This innovative project pioneers the introduction of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the combination of western medicine in diagnosis, follow up and the treatment of osteoporosis to people with intellectual disabilities.  It can minimise the impact of osteoporosis in these families through the establishment of “Community Support Networks” and well utilise community resources.  In addition, it can arouse public awareness on the prevention of osteoporosis, and raise the concern about the needs of people with intellectual disabilities.
