In order to keep in check with the oral health of a health conscious community, the private communications company ‘Asiacell’ (based in Iraq) has recently started a ‘Dental Health Awareness Campaign’, which has announced that it would work alongside the ‘Shahid Sardar Dental Centre’.
The campaign is due to last three months, with an ultimate goal of raising awareness about the best oral health routines for children. In order to spread this message to as many people as possible ‘Asiacell’ will distribute packages to children who visit the ‘Shahid Sardar Dental Centre’. This package includes two books on dental health awareness, as well as a toothbrush and toothpaste.
The CEO of ‘Asiacell’ is Dr. Diar Ahmed who commented that this response demonstrated by Asiacell is ideal for its social responsibility and shows the dedication to support Iraq’s dynamic sectors. Dr. Ahmed said: “It is imperative for private companies to support national efforts in catering to the growing healthcare needs of all community members, particularly children, who are considered the foundation to building a brighter future. By the end of this campaign, we hope to have reached out to approximately 10,000 children, which in turn will decrease the risk of oral diseases. We look forward to future opportunities for cooperation with both public and private healthcare organizations across the various provinces of our country, in order to provide healthcare services to all members of the Iraqi community.”
