FG To Establish State Oral Health Committees – Minister

The Federal Government is to establish State Oral Health Committees in line with the National Oral Health Policy, the Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, has said.

He announced this at a news conference marking the third National Oral Health Week, in Abuja, on Monday.

Chukwu said that the committees, which will be headed by State Oral Health Ambassadors as Chairmen, would comprise relevant stakeholders in oral health.

These include professional associations, development partners, traditional rulers and state ministries’ oral health officials.

“This is aimed at solving the peculiar problems related to oral health in the states while encouraging community participation,” he said.

He pledged the ministry’s determination to promote oral hygiene through the implementation of the oral health policy in the country.
