Editorial: The WHO Global Oral Health Action Plan 2023-2030

Authors: Kenneth Eaton Huda Yusuf PAULA VASSALLO
doi: 10.1922/CDH_Jun23Editorial02


Oral health is finally on the global agenda. The World Health Organisation Global Oral Health Action Plan (OHAP) 2023-2030 (WHO, 2022a) has been completed following a public consultation which took place during August and September 2022. As oral diseases are the most prevalent non-communicable diseases; it is good to see that the OHAP will co-exist alongside the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Non-communicable Diseases 2013–2030. This editorial summarises the OHAP and highlights the opportunities and challenges discussed during the September 2022 EADPH congress, held cojointly with the Council of the European Chief Dental Officers (CECDO).
