Prior to its adoption, FDI World Dental Federation and the International Association for Dental Research issued a statement asking Member States to adopt the Resolution, work towards its implementation and promote dental research to strengthen evidence of the association between oral disease and other NCDs such as diabetes.

IDF supports the statement, together with Smile Train, NCD Alliance and the members of the Global Coalition for Circulatory Health – International Society of Nephrology, World Heart Federation, and World Stroke Organisation.
