Refugee Oral Health – Time for Action
The first pillar of FDI’s Vision 2030 advocacy strategy states that essential oral health services should be integrated into universal healthcare packages in every country, and quality oral healthcare should become available, accessible, and affordable to all, with special attention paid to marginalized and vulnerable populations.
Refugees are among the most vulnerable groups worldwide. They have limited access to oral health education, oral disease prevention and therapeutic dental care. This is due, in part, to the relatively high cost of restorative treatment, limited access and availability of dentists, unaffordability of dental insurance, and language barriers.
During this webinar, the audience will be introduced to the refugees’ oral health problem and the existing policies related to refugees’ oral health around the world; learn more about oral health in refugees camp from an organization working on the ground and about the role of international organizations in the promotion of oral heath for refugees. Finally, our speakers will present recommendations and best practices to improve oral health care provision among refugees.
- raise awareness of the burden that refugees face to maintain their own oral health and the challenges that host countries face to maintain good oral health in their populations
- provide guidance on measuring and understanding the problem with focused attention on the social determinants of oral health
- support countries that host refugees with tools and strategies that can strengthen their own oral health strategies and programmes
