Oral hygiene must not be taken for granted as it is an important component in staying healthy. Save the Children, in partnership with Wrigley, aims to improve the health and educational status of children through the improved use of school-based health and nutrition services. Oral health care is given importance through dental services, peer education, health lessons, and parent education sessions. Other interventions include improvement of WASH facilities and strengthening of school policies.
