New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry’s World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Center, together with Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Health, will host a virtual event on Wednesday, May 26 on integrating oral health and global health.

In January 2021, the WHO adopted a resolution on oral health calling for the development of a global oral health strategy, action plan, and monitoring framework in order to integrate oral health with Universal Health Coverage and the global agenda for noncommunicable diseases by 2030. The endorsement of the resolution is on the agenda of the 74th World Health Assembly, an annual meeting of the WHO’s decision-making body to establish its priorities and policies.

The event will include speakers and panelists from the WHO, NYU Dentistry, Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Health, and additional high-level member state representatives from ministries of health in Denmark, Japan, Kenya, and Thailand. They will discuss the state of health worldwide, policy pathways towards oral health for all, and turning policy into action to improve oral health by 2030.

The event will take place on May 26 from 11:30-13:00 EDT (New York); 17:30-19:00 CET (Geneva); or 21:00–22:30 IST (Colombo). For a schedule of the event and to register, please visit the event’s website. A link to the Zoom webinar will be provided after registration. Read the full release here.
