National Bone Health Alliance
Strong Bones America

Who we are

The National Bone Health Alliance® (NBHA) is a public-private partnership launched in 2010 that brings together the expertise and resources of its member organizations to collectively: promote bone health and prevent disease; improve diagnosis and treatment of bone disease; and enhance bone research, surveillance and evaluation. The National Bone Health Alliance's 54 member organizations, along with liaisons representing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, are working together to bring about a shared vision: to improve the overall health and quality of life of all Americans by enhancing their bone health. NBHA members and other experts make up the various committees, project teams and working groups that carry out the work of the Alliance, while projects and operations are funded through financial support from member organizations.
