COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMME
Through our community outreach programmes we continued to open up boundaries in communities which have seen marginalized people getting free dental services. The community-based dental outreach programs play a very crucial role in declining discovery-delivery disconnect by introducing awareness through health education and dental adumbrating services to the community members. These programs are found to be very effective for diminishing health unevenness
Oral health care takes medical teams directly to those in need. In this we have an outreach team which goes to different communities carrying out different oral health care services at no cost. As earlier mentioned we support the ministry of health by partnering with public health centers which do not provide dental services. Amongst the Vulnerable communities served the refugees have turned out to be the neediest and the most challenging. We continue to seek out likeminded people to continuously address these challenges.
Cases identified but not managed during outreaches are referred to
the different Centers, partnering medical facilities and government
facilities for further management.
The services provided in the outreaches include but not limited to Advocacy, Sensitization/Oral Health Education, Dental checkups, treatment, referral and social research.
