'Bridge2Aid fights the causes of poverty in some of the poorest communities in the developing world. We do this by strengthening local healthcare systems – specifically by training local healthcare workers in the provision of emergency dental treatment. Oral disease, infection and chronic pain, desperately need to be addressed in these communities to enable people to work, attend school and care for their families. Initially, we have developed our programme in rural Tanzania, and our long term plan is to roll this training out to any country where there is a need.
