It was an excellent lecture. I learned so many new things about forensic odontology. The session was interesting and informative, and the respected speaker answered all questions and cleared our doubts which is quite appreciable. The organizing authority of the lecture has full control. Thank you, Dr. Ranjeet Singh, I looking for more sessions like this.
A dental study provides great insights while dealing with disaster victim identification cases, including age estimation, missing persons, child abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, etc. Forensic odontologists prevent human rights violations by implementing humanitarian best practices.
To protect human rights, on May 5, 2015, AFOHR was founded as a group during the annual Interpol meeting in Leong. In 2019, it came to be known as the Association of Forensic Odontology for Human Rights.
One particular area is using knowledge to identify people. The campaign developed by AFOHR is named "Identify Me", and is translated into five languages: English, Italian, Arabic, Portuguese, and Hindi. The primary motive is to spread awareness about the role odontology and dentistry play in identifying missing and unidentified people. It also states the need to mention the details of oral health experts, dental clinics, and hospitals visited by the missing person while filing a missing person report with the police.
In this webinar on "Humanitarian Forensic Odontology & IdentifyMe", the speaker will highlight the role of AFOHR in promoting forensic odontology awareness and uses, forensic dental identification techniques, the role of dentistry in disaster victim identification, forensic dentistry humanitarian laws, and the role of dental experts during crises.
