Capacity Building in Africa

The World Dental Development Fund supports capacity building activities in dental public health in five West-African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger and Togo). Training courses for oral health managers in dental public health will be developed in close co-operation with a network of stakeholders including the WHO, National governments, dental associations, the French NGO Aide Odontologique Internationale (AOI) as well as with local and international universities. This initiative is a direct result of the Planning Conference for Oral Health in the African Region that was organized by the FDI and WHO in April 2004 in Nairobi, Kenya.
