The FDI-Unilever partnership has now moved into Phase III with the launch of ‘Brush Day and Night’, which will run until the end of 2016. The focus continues to be on educating children about the importance of brushing twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste to maintain good oral health.
In addition, a key objective will be to empower children to become advocates for improving oral health. By sharing their knowledge, children can engage their parents or guardians so they too become more aware of the importance of tooth brushing and fluoride.
‘Brush Day and Night’ grants will support programmes targeting school children in Chile, Greece, Indonesia, Morocco, Myanmar, Nigeria, Philippines, South Africa, Turkey and Vietnam, with several schools envisaged per project.
In addition, the Partnership Global Team will continue to work with other National Dental Associations on World Oral Health Day (WOHD) events and activities in 2016.
