To address the oral health needs for people on the move, FDI World Dental Federation recently joined forces with Lancet Migration to develop their Oral Health for People on the Move policy brief aimed at policymakers, governments and health systems, NGOs and charities, and academics and research institutions. 

It sheds light on the urgent need for action to reduce oral health inequalities among this particular group and provides key recommendations through calls-to-action.  

Emphasising that strong and coherent action is required to improve the oral health of people on the move through a comprehensive universal health system approach, the policy brief highlights the current gaps in the system. 

Its key calls-to-action include increasing adequate epidemiological surveillance systems, oral health education, and access to care and to digital technologies.
