Issues in Oral Health for Low Income and Disadvantaged Groups in NSW

An Advocacy Kit for Community & Welfare Non-Government Organisations (NGOs)

The NSW Oral Health Alliance has designed this advocacy kit for community and welfare non-government organisations (NGOs). It aims to raise awareness of oral health issues for low income and disadvantaged groups in NSW and promote action in the lead up to the NSW State Election 2011.

The NSW Oral Health Alliance encourages organisations to consider unfair access to dental services and the major disparities in oral health outcomes for their clients. We hope that you will incorporate oral health into your election campaign priorities and take up this oftenneglected issue in your advocacy with government, media, and the broader community.
