40 African NGOs sign the Abuja Declaration for Mercury-Free Dentistry

DSCN0120Almost forty environmental, consumer, and human rights groups from African nations spanning the continent – west, east, north, south, and central – have signed the Abuja Declaration for Mercury-Free Dentistry for Africa.

The Abuja Declaration boldly declares, “Africa shall be the 1st continent to phase out amalgam.”  This declaration grew out of the West African Summit on Phasing Out Amalgam, held in Abuja, Nigeria in May 2014, a summit sponsored by the World Alliance for Mercury-Free Dentistry.
