A team of 13 volunteers is ready to “take over” the responsibility of Oral Care in Uvinza for 10 days from November 30th thru December 11th 2018.
Owos has signed a partnership agreement with Sophia Antipolis Nice University in France, to work together towards the improvement of oral health in the poorest area of Tanzania.
In a country with over 50 million people where more than 27 million have no access to oral care, and after an amazing action a few months ago in Kigoma followed by long talks with the local authorities, Owos has committed to focus in that region for the rest of 2018, due to the immense needs, and the emergency of the situation.
Our team has visited the area during the past weeks to study the best way to approach this camp and be as efficient as possible.
The partnership with Nice University will allow our team to have for the first time 4 Dental Students help as auxiliary staff which will help improve considerably the efficiency of the team. Each Student or Junior practitioner will be overseen by a Senior Dentist to maintain the demanding top level by Owos ´standards.
Accommodation for the team will have to be improvised in tents to remain close to the area where the camp will be set and waste the least amount of time possible with transport.
