Introduction

The Center for Dental Education and Research was designated as the WHO-CC for Oral Health Promotion on 17th May 2014. It is the only WHO-CC in the entire South East Asia Region on Oral Health and one of the 14 Collaborating Centres on Oral Health the world over.

This recognition came to CDER as it was working closely with WHO on various collaborative projects over 15 years. Seven WHO-GOI collaborative projects on various public dental health issues were completed and its faculty served as temporary consultants to WHO on few International meetings.


The terms of reference for the centre are as follows:

1. To assist WHO in training of public health professionals involved with oral health promotion and integrated disease prevention. (Training component))

2. To promote Oral Health with focus on behavior change including use of common risk factor approach on request of WHO. (Oral Health Promotion)

3. To assist WHO in adapting Global Oral Health Tools to the SEA Regional Context

  • The work done so far

    A regional consultation meeting of South East Asian (SEA) countries on “Action Plan for Promoting Oral Health & Surveillance in the South-East Asia Region” was organized on 22nd-23rd October 2014, in which 7 countries; Bangladesh, Bhutan, Indonesia, Mynmar, Nepal, Thailand and India participated. Director of WHO-CC on Oral Health Promotion in Japan Dr. Miyazaki also attended in the meeting. Professors of Public Health Dentistry from 8 dental colleges, Public Health experts, representatives from Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, WHO-Searo and CDER faculty participated in the meeting. The objective of the meeting was to adopt the surveillance tools for NCDs developed by WHO to Oral Health which can be used across SEA countries.

    To pilot test the study tools, a six-months community-based study on 1300 subjects in Ballabhgargh in Faridabad district, Haryana (adjoining Delhi) has been designed and APW has been signed.
