Save the Date Invitation From The Committee Dear friends and colleagues, It is my great pleasure to invite you to join us for the 54th Congress of the Society for Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes of South Africa (SEMDSA) to be held at the Southern Sun Elangeni and Maharani in Durban from 3 -5 April 2020. We are thrilled to be hosting the 2020 Congress and look forward to this being a productive, exciting and memorable meeting. SEMDSA is open to all persons involved in Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes, and aims to improve clinical practice and promote clinical and scientific research into all branches of this field, for the well-being of people living with diabetes and related disorders. With the dramatic rise in the burden of diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease in South Africa over the past few decades, the organization has played a leading role in setting professional guidelines, maintaining academic training standards, providing guidance and advice on relevant policy, and promoting equal access to health services for all sectors of society.

For our visitors from abroad, Durban is South Africa’s ‘holiday city’ located on the eastern African seaboard and known for its beautiful sandy beaches and yearlong subtropical weather. It is a vibrant hub of culture, commerce and innovation. The Southern Sun Elangeni and Maharani is a symbolic hotel and conferencing venue on Durban’s Promenade, better known as the ‘Golden Mile’, and offers panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, modern style and comfort, and easy access to the sights, sounds and tastes of Durban. As Chairperson of the Organising Committee, I cordially invite you to attend our Congress and am confident it will provide a fantastic opportunity to participate in the various scientific sessions, to network with colleagues old and new, and thoroughly enjoy the program that has been planned. We look forward to welcoming you all to Durban in 2020! Regards, Ashegan Pillay Chairperson of the Organising Committee

Save the Date OSTEOPOROSIS IS A DISEASE

in which the density and quality of bones are reduced, leading to weakness of the skeleton and increased risk of fracture, particularly of the spine, wrists, hip, pelvis and upper arms. Osteoporosis and associated fractures are an important cause of mortality and morbidity. In many affected people, bone loss is gradual and without warning signs until the disease is advanced. Osteoporosis is a widespread public health problem. The costs to national healthcare systems from osteoporosisrelated hospitalisation are staggering. Even so, osteoporosis was not precisely defined as a disease until

1994. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has since identified osteoporosis as a priority health issue along with other major non-communicable diseases. Rapid progress is being made in the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis. Early detection of bone loss is key to the prevention of suffering and escalation of health care costs. Bone mineral density (BMD) measurements are effective in assessing fracture risk, confirming a diagnosis of osteoporosis and monitoring the effect of treatment. A major concern is that access to measuring equipment and qualified technical personnel and reimbursement by medical insurance schemes remain inadequate in a great many countries.
