Part of the ambition of the ACFF is to equip committed groups of volunteers around the world to design and implement locally applicable projects to fight against cavities in their countries. The first local ACFF Chapter to launch was in Colombia in May 2011. The ACFF network has since expanded rapidly and currently hosts 28 Local Chapters spanning 6 continents. Each Chapter works ‘Glocally’, taking the global ACFF mission and translating it to fit the needs and capabilities of their own populations.
Chapters are each run by dedicated teams of local dental and public health professionals and educators, committed to achieving the goals of the ACFF.
As well as working towards the Global goals of the ACFF, each Chapter forms their own goals based on local circumstance and need. These goals vary hugely, often offering targets related to education, public policy change and improvements in the quality of dental health provision for children or other ‘at risk’ groups.
We are hugely proud of the efforts being made, and are certain that together, we can continue to work and advocate for change, and that our dream of a Cavity-Free Future can become a reality.PROFESSOR NIGEL PITTS- ACFF GLOBAL CHAIRMAN
