A collaboration in oral health services research between the Kingdom of Swaziland and the Republic of South Africa is reported. The aim and methodology of the project is described and a summary of the results of the descriptive study is given. The latter included the status of dental caries, periodontal disease and malocclusion of 12 year old school children, an evaluation of a community preventive programme, an assessment of the knowledge, attitudes and behaviour of school teachers towards oral health and an analysis of the output of public oral health services. Five major strategies were recommended for the further development of oral health services in Swaziland and it is recommended that these be undertaken within the contextual realities of Southern Africa.
