Since 2002 when we started work in Tanzania, Bridge2Aid has worked tirelessly to increase access to pain relief. Focussing on sustainability, and empowering local people to improve their own lives over the long term, we have trained over 220* local healthcare workers in emergency dentistry, and now train more than 50 health workers each year. This training has not only directly treated tens of thousands of people but has also extended access to emergency dentistry services to people living in the rural areas. An estimated 2 million people now live within reach of someone who can help them when they have dental pain.
