[Comment] Strengthening oral health for universal health coverage

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 estimated that oral diseases affected half of the world’s population.1 Nonetheless, oral health is a neglected area of global health that could make a contribution to achieving universal health coverage (UHC).2 UHC can help frame policy dialogue to address weak and fragmented primary oral health services, and address substantial out-of-pocket expenses associated with oral health care in many countries, which in turn would help to achieve UHC.
