Product Allocation Requests for Oral Health Programs
Some general principles that shape the criteria for selection by Colgate of programs eligible for Colgate oral health products (“Products”):
- Products need embedding in health promotion approaches rather than just being used as one off handouts to generate goodwill
- Programs will be favoured if they demonstrate alignment with the government oral health plans and approaches cognisant of the social determinants of oral health
- Programs should aim to improve common risk factor approaches and be connected to broader approaches aimed at improving health
- Where there is competition for Products, programs with the best planning for sustainable, efficient, and effective outcomes will be selected
Criteria for Selection of Programs:
In order to be eligible for Product allocation, programs will be selected on their ability to meet the following criteria or a majority thereof:
1. Programs should be targeted at low income or socially disadvantaged communities and/or those communities with poor access to oral care;
2. Programs should address the areas and/or recommendations in relevant government oral health policies;
3. Approaches to oral health promotion should be informed by evidence for effectiveness where possible;
4. Programs should have developed approaches to sustainability;
5. Program evaluation should be planned by the requestor and such evaluation provided in an on-going way, with a report made available to Colgate upon completion of the program or as otherwise may be requested by Colgate, as a requirement of support;
6. Agency collaborations and common risk factor approaches are encouraged to broaden the impact of the Product resources;
If the project is specifically targeting children under the age of 10 years, then your application will be assessed by the Taskforce Subcommittee of the Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future (ACFF).
