It will be important to relate oral health systematically to the goals of the SDGs, their indicators and targets from the outset.

This will provide a framework for the systematic inclusion of oral healthcare in strengthening health systems, to promote oral healthcare and prevention in the context of NCDs and universal health coverage; and to make strong advocacy arguments for cross-cutting and multi-sectoral integration of oral health in sustainable human development.
