Product support will be granted towards projects or programs that meet all, or most, of the following criteria:
  • Sustainability: Projects demonstrating ability to achieve a sustainable improvement in oral health, overall health or improved quality of life, in underserved communities or populations.
  • Simplicity: Complicated procedures are more time consuming and are not beneficial on a cost/health basis if we are to connect with as many patients as possible. Simple procedures as outlined in the WHO Oral Health Surveys Basic Methods (5th edition) should, where possible, be utilized.
  • Suitable to local needs: Demographics, epidemiology and accountability need to be taken into account when formatting projects. Measurements need to be taken both pre and post treatment in order to adequately assess the outcomes.
  • Supported by a written protocol: It is important that all applications provide information of needs assessment and are written in such a way that is scientific and evidence based.
  • Serviced by a local contact: Having a local person on hand to receive materials, help with potential language difficulties and facilitate local help is important.
  • Fellow Participation: Having Fellows participate directly in projects or programs, or indirectly in the format of oversight, is not only required but critical to the follow-up, sustainability and accountability of the project and successful outcomes. Fellow-to-Fellow engagement adds value to Fellowship and the College, especially through service. Cross-Sectional and Regional Fellow collaboration and volunteerism is the most ideal whenever possible.
