She informed that it has been proven that inadequate health literacy is one of the key reasons why many persons avoid the dentist, a phenomenon that contributes to poor oral health in rural, low-income, and vulnerable populations.?Good oral health is extremely important as the opposite position has been linked with major health problems, such as diabetes and cardiovascular and respiratory diseases,? said the Minister as she noted that ?the negative impact and burden of oral disease often fall heaviest on rural, low-income persons.?A section of the gathering at the launch yesterday.According to the Minister, ?we must do all that is necessary to change this unfavourable situation?This is where effective education programmes become necessary.?Over the years, the Government of Guyana has implemented a number of strategies to ensure that Guyanese benefit from the excellent professional oral health service that exists in Guyana. The Ministry of Public Health, Minister Cummings said, continues to work tirelessly to ensure that all Guyanese have equal and equitable access to the best quality health care possible, including oral health care.As such, the Minister stressed the importance of education,[url=http://www.nfljerseyscheaponline.us@#$%&/]Cheap Jerseys From China Online[/url], even as she reiterated that learning the correct ways to personally care for and maintain good oral health is essential. Knowing when professional help is needed is also very critical to how one manages the oral health issues with which one is afflicted, the Minister added.?You are never too young or too old to learn about appropriate dental care. It is important to note that proper oral health is important at any age and should target every person in the society,[url=http://www.cheapjerseysfan.us@#$%&/]China Jerseys Cheap[/url],? said the MinisterShe therefore pointed to the importance of Guyanese becoming informed about the virtues of good oral health, an undertaking that requires a multi-stakeholder approach. And according to Minister Cummings, the Public Health Ministry is committed to working with all concerned stakeholders to ensure that oral health literacy is spread across the country.Broadly, health literacy refers to skills that establish a person?s motivation and ability to access, process, and use information to promote and maintain good health. Moreover, oral health literacy refers to the capacity of a person to source, process, and understand the basic information needed to make decisions about oral health, according to Minister Cummings.She added that increasing interest in health literacy is driven by evidence showing association between health literacy and outcomes. The Minister continued by noting that ?low health literacy is associated with poor health knowledge, unhealthy behaviours, low usage of preventive services, poor health status, and high hospitalization rates.?Minister Cummings disclosed too that a growing body of evidence indicates that people without the requisite health literacy skills to make sound health decisions in their everyday lives are more vulnerable and have poorer health outcomes.She therefore concluded that it is vital that ?we use this period to step up our programmes that promote health literacy. An educated people results in a healthy nation?Therefore, our efforts at providing learning opportunities must be significantly increased during this month and maintained henceforth.?Yesterday?s forum was also graced by a representative of Colgate Palmolive Limited which has been collaborating with the Ministry?s Dental Services for a number of years.The launch of Oral Health Month also entailed an exhibition which showcased literature and measures that can be utilized to help improve oral health.
