  • Webinar: Oral Health and NCDs: How to collaborate and find common ground for better health outcomes

    Webinar: Oral Health and NCDs: How to collaborate and find common ground for better health outcomes

    Webinars
     |  03rd December 2018

    Oral health and noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) do not exist in isolation. It is widely acknowledged that oral diseases and other NCDs are closely linked and share modifiable common risk factors, including unhealthy diets high in sugar, tobacco use and alcohol consumption. No country can end the NCD epidemic unless it effectively addresses oral health. Integrated rather than disease-specific responses are therefore needed in order to effectively address the NCD burden. This webinar co-hosted by FDI World Dental Federation and NCD Alliance will focus on how the oral health and broader NCD community can accomplish their common goals by working together.

    A breath of fresh air

    Policy Briefs
     |  29th October 2018

    Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, and a leading risk factor for NCDs. According to the WHO, air pollution causes 7 million deaths every year worldwide. Of these deaths, about 80% are from NCDs, making the number of NCD deaths due to air pollution comparable to mortality due to tobacco use. Air pollution negatively affects quality of life for all, and in particular for billions of people living with NCDs.
