Project Title: Village School Oral Health Program, Nepal
The Village School Oral Health Program, located in remote village schools in the Kavre and Sindhupalchok Districts of Nepal (total target population up to 1,000 school children), aims to improve the oral health and health of children in poor and marginalised rural communities in Nepal through the provision of a school and community based preventive oral health program. The program has been operated by local dental personnel over the past 18 years. Dr Sandra Meihubers of New South Wales assists with fund raising, planning and coordination of the program and provides professional support to the Nepalese dental personnel. The program includes dental screening and appropriate dental care of all children in the schools. A daily school tooth brushing program is delivered to students in Classes KG/1 to 6. Dental information training sessions are conducted for teachers and senior students to enable them to become dental trainers.
