Friends of OSAP

The Friends of OSAP are a unique group of global leaders who support OSAP.  Through knowledge exchange and translation, OSAP Friends seeks to integrate oral infection control and safety procedures into health infection initiatives globally and represent the larger infection prevention and control communities.

Expectations for the Friends of OSAP

  1. Create a higher level of visibility with a larger network of communities
  2. Identify critical issues globally in the various domains and communities
  3. Delineate potential activities/initiatives to address critical issues
