Platform for Better Oral Health in Europe – Best Practices Collection
The Platform for Better Oral Health in Europe is currently gathering examples of best practice in oral health promotion and prevention from across Europe.
The Platform aims to find common solutions to improve oral health across the European Union and to reduce inequalities both across Europe and within Member States. The goals of this exercise are to
foster understanding of importance of oral health promotion and prevention amongst policymakers in the EU;
demonstrate the cost effectiveness of prevention;
raise awareness and disseminate good practices across Europe; and
increase the Platform’s focus on providing concrete solutions to the unmet needs in access to quality dental care, and ultimately seeking to improve general health and overall quality of life.
Best practices could therefore include for example programmes aimed at reduction of tobacco consumption and harm, the introduction of health in all policies, education systems, improving general health through oral health, tackling obesity and/or the prevention of cancer.
ADEE encourages its memebers to participate and would ask you complete the attached template by 21st August 2015 referencing any best practice examples you may have in your country or organisation within the provided space.
For the purpose of this exercise, The Platform would like to ask you to be as brief as possible, and to focus your response on the outcomes of the activities. You may wish to attach any additional information (e.g. official reports, news items, pictures, charts, etc.) separately for illustration purposes only. The questionnaire should take no longer than 10 minutes of your time to complete.
Based on this exercise, we will compile the results to be presented at the Second European Oral Health Summit on 13th October 2015 in Brussels. You will shortly receive a personalised invitation.
