The Australian Network for Integration of Oral Health (NIOH), founded in 2017, is an independent group, connected through our mission to put the mouth back into the body and make oral health everyone’s business. NIOH draws from multiple and diverse areas of health and social sciences and includes academics, practitioners and advocates. Our members are from universities, government agencies, not-for-profits, primary health care services, consumer groups, hospitals and industry across Australia.
