Gearing up for WOHD 2013

28 February 2013

FDI is gearing up for World Oral health Day 2013, 20 March, with some surprises in store for its members and the general public and great support from national dental associations!

The WOHD team has devised some awareness-raising materials that are sure to create a buzz in the lead-up and rally support on the day. In addition, a number of member NDAs have registered their support on the WOHD webpage and number of languages covered by the logo has grown from 12 to over 20 in just four weeks, with Georgian and Urdu the latest contributions.

In addition, a number of copies of the WOHD toolkit, online in four languages—English, French, German and Spanish (Italian on the way)—have already been downloaded, and the WOHD poster is now also available in French, German and Spanish.

All the same, with less than three weeks to go, now is not the time to let up. We are counting on more and more of our members sending their logo to WOHD2013@fdiworldental.org to show their support. It would be a bonus if they also sent us in advance their own plans for the day.

We encourage all stakeholders to make use of the logos, toolkit and other online resources to ensure the worldwide success and international outreach of World Oral Health Day 2013!
