Oral health

Oral health partners

The WHO Global Oral Health Programme collaborates closely with other WHO departments at all levels in cross-cluster initiatives to facilitate the integration of oral health promotion and oral disease prevention into other health programmes (e.g. NCDs prevention and control, Maternal and child health). Outside WHO, the Oral Health Programme works with Member States, other international organizations and civil society through NGOs working on oral health promotion and oral disease prevention.
