“Continuing Conversations” Alliance for Oral Health Across Borders Description
Alliance for Oral Health Across Borders
ALLIANCE FOR ORAL HEALTH ACROSS BORDERS is a 501C3 organization. We are a global network that leverages its collective experience to problem solve difficult oral health issues.
We signed our Charter in 2011 and quickly became known for our main initiative known as the “Bridge to Peace”. This project brought dental communities from groups in conflict to work collaboratively. Since our successful beginning, we have continued to take on activities that emphasize the concept of “crossing borders” and bringing all kinds of differing groups, or even concepts, together for the greater good.
Few policy makers, both governmental and nongovernmental, as well as advocacy groups are aware that these are almost entirely preventable conditions. The Alliance for Oral Health Across Borders is a 501C3 NGO that is comprised of academic institutions, corporations, and health professionals who advocate for oral health as part of general health, with a special focus on those living with disabilities and health inequalities.
