Arab World Conference

Between April 4th and 6, Professor Bedi attended and presented at the 1st Arab World Conference on Public Health in Dubai, hosted by Dubai Health Authority under the umbrella of World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA).

The session entitled 'Oral Health: reflections from the Arab World' updated the programmes in the EMRO region, with particular focus on Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Professor Bedi underlined why many today believe  dental cavities in children can be eliminated within our lifetime. The commonest chronic disease in childhood can be eradicated, but it will take a big effort from everyone to reach this goal. This conference brought together senior dental leaders in the Gulf to discuss how such an ambitious target can be achieved.
