Continuing its long-standing commitment to improving oral health, the Colgate-Palmolive Company announced a partnership with a global taskforce established by a World Health Organization (WHO) unit to help eradicate dental cavities among children around the world.

Colgate will partner with the Global Child Dental Health Taskforce (a UK-based Collaborating Center of the WHO) to establish 30 Oral Health Centers of Excellence. These centers will educate children and parents, provide critically needed preventive dental services, conduct continuing education training for dental health professionals, and distribute 30 million tubes of Colgate toothpaste over 5 years. Colgate will also support the creation of a global oral health network of national chief dental officers that will provide leadership training and hold conferences to share resources and best practices.
