AFOHR 2023—Challenges in Human Identification

The 2nd Biennial Symposium of the Association of Forensic Odontology for Human Rights (AFOHR) will be held October 12-14, 2023, in Turin, Italy. 

AFOHR is the first association promoting best practice in human identification and age estimation through humanitarian forensic odontology for the purpose of preventing human rights violations.

Emerging trends and practices in forensic odontology have successfully spread across the globe for humanitarian forensic odontology, bringing together researchers, academics, and learners to serve nations. AFOHR, which promotes humanitarian forensic odontology and forensics, has been working tirelessly since 2015 to prevent human rights violations, joining hands with other experts in forensics from over 30 different countries. This second symposium, like the previous one, is a remarkable forum for knowledge, inviting scientists, academics, researchers, and learners under one roof to share and encourage new technologies and trends, with the purpose of improving the human identification process and respecting the human rights of the deceased.
