Excerpt
This mailing constitutes the first general announcement to the whole oral health community on World Health Day to be held on 7 April 1994 and on the activities pr~posed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to the whole profession. It is also appropriate to provide a note on the history leading to celebration of a Year of Oral Health closely linked with the World Health Day. I. History In 1990, the International Dental Federation (FDI) observer at the WHO Regional Committee for South &st Asia made the suggestion that WHO should celebrate a year of oral health. That request was transmitted by the WHO Regional Office for South East Asia to WHO Headquarters in Geneva and the proposal was submitted to the Director-General of WHO suggesting 1993 as an appropriate year. The alternative decision was taken to have oral health as the theme for World Health Day in 1994. It was explained that WHO did not have a policy of dedicating a year to any theme, but there was no objection to WHO encouraging the whole dental profession, especially through its international federations and associations, to celebrate 1994 as a Year of Oral Health, linked with the World Health Day event on 7 April.
