Despite significant advancements in dentistry, siloed approaches to oral health have failed to reduce the global burden of oral disease. Today, oral diseases affect more than 3.5 billion people, with a disproportionate impact on those who are poor and socially disadvantaged.
The Alliance for Oral Health Across Borders seeks to promote oral health awareness and general health improvement through collaboration among diverse communities and health professionals around the world.
The Alliance for Oral Health Across Borders is a global network of leaders who share a common belief in the importance promoting oral health as a conduit for communication and as a mechanism that will reduce the burden of oral disease across boundaries.
Today, the Alliance is committed to achieving the following goals…
Create global learning networks for health professionals.
Build conduits among disparate communities through oral health initiatives.
Support oral health leadership capacity.
Enable implementation research.
Promote oral health within the world health agenda.
