The International College of Dentists (ICD) is proud to announce that it has been granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). This designation not only provides access to ECOSOC, but also to its many subsidiary bodies as well as special events organized by the President of the General Assembly.
Under Consultative Status, the College may provide expert analysis to the ECOSOC on issues directly related to its experience in oral health, identify arising issues and challenges, help monitor and implement international agreements, help raise public awareness of relevant issues, while playing a major role in advancing United Nations goals and objectives when they are aligned with College goals and objectives. The College will also be able to attend international conferences and events and make written and oral statements when called upon, organize side events, enter United Nations premises, and network with influencers and decision-makers around the world.
ECOSOC Consultative Status is recognition of the preeminent position and worldwide reputation of the ICD in advancing global oral health for underserved and vulnerable populations.
