May 8, 2024

The Oral Health Working Group (OHWG) of the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) in collaboration with the International Federation of Dental Hygienists and the Seoul National University Global Maternal and Child Oral Health Center has launched a groundbreaking initiative. They have kicked off a global oral health workforce survey aimed at understanding the various types of oral health workforces and their functions worldwide.

What is the aim of this project?

The project’s primary objective is to explore and visually represent oral health workforce models, innovative approaches, and challenges on a global scale. By doing so, it is hoped that the survey will provide a comprehensive understanding of the global oral health workforce landscape.
