The WHO Oral Health Report provides an overview of the latest data on major oral diseases, risk factors, health system challenges and opportunities for reform. The clear conclusion of the report is that the global oral health status is alarming and requires urgent action. The report will serve as a reference for policymakers and as a guide for a wide range of stakeholders across sectors to guide advocacy efforts towards better prioritization of oral health in global, regional and national contexts. In addition, as a separate online resource, the report provides the first-ever oral health profiles by country for all 194 WHO member states, providing unique insights into key areas and characteristics of oral health relevant to decision-makers.
