Promoting oral health and prevention of oral diseases in the community in partnership with the Earth Institute.
In partnership with the Earth Institute, GSK, and Novartis, oral health is brought to the forefront of eradicating oral diseases in the Millennium Villages of Ethiopia and Senegal. The project also seeks to monitor oral health disease trends within the community and to develop evidence-based oral health policies that can be scaled up to the regional and national level. The priority for the Oral Health and Hygiene Project is to design preventive and curative activities tailored to each site.
The results of the implementation in the Millennium Villages sites will be used to advocate at a global level for scaling up access to oral hygiene and oral care in developing countries, with a focus on prevention.
