Fonterra, a global dairy company, and GE Healthcare last week inked a three-year agreement in Singapore in a partnership to utilize Fonterra’s ANLENE bone health products and GE’s bone mineral density technology to confront osteoporosis across Asia.

The partnership’s first initiative is the Anlene Bone Health Check, which will provide free ultrasound bone health screenings to an estimated three million people in nine countries across Asia over the next two years. The next phase is likely to extend to Australia and New Zealand, the companies said.

The program will capture a comprehensive bank of data on bone health that will be shared with other lead agencies addressing osteoporosis and bone health problems, including the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF).
