On the fourth day of the 148th session of the World Health Organization (WHO) Executive Board meeting, Member States passed a game-changing resolution on Oral health, spearheaded by the government of Sri Lanka. WHO Director General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus called it a “landmark resolution” and congratulated Sri Lanka for their work to push the resolution forward. The resolution garnered broad and enthusiastic support from Member States across the globe.
As FDI is in official relations with WHO, we were able to deliver a statement in support of the resolution; the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) also gave a statement, which echoed ours whilst emphasizing the importance of sound research to improve oral health outcomes worldwide.
