About

Osteoporosis is an important public health problem in Vietnam, with one in ten Vietnamese women suffering from it. There is enough evidence demonstrating that low calcium intake is one of the risk factors for osteoporosis among Asian women in general and Vietnamese women in specific. It is reported that the intake of calcium among Vietnamese women is under 400 mg/day, which is less than the daily recommendation of 1,000 mg/day by the Vietnam National Institute of Nutrition, even though calcium-rich foods are largely available in Vietnam. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to promote dietary calcium intake among Vietnamese women aged 30-65 years through implementing a nutrition education intervention.

Full description

Vietnamese women aged 30-65 years without medical problems that could interfere with the calcium consumption, such as kidney stone, kidney and liver diseases. The women will be excluded if they are blinded, deaf, or have general learning disability. Outcomes of the study are dietary calcium intake, calcium knowledge, and osteoporosis health belief. A quantitative questionnaire is being used to collect these data.
