December is Disease Prevention and Treatment Month

What is your Rotary Club doing to focus your efforts on Disease Prevention and Treatment?

Rotary's top priority is the eradication of poliobut our members take on far greater responsibilities to fight disease.

December is Disease Prevention and Treatment Month on the Rotary Calendar.

This is one of the Foundations Areas of Focus and one in which many of us would be aware of the numerous projects around the world supported by clubs and the Foundation. Look at your role in promoting improved health at home and abroad and supporting these vital programs that contribute not only to healthy communities but peaceful communities.

Disease prevention and treatment takes on many forms, from supporting studies to helping immunize people to improving drinking water and the sanitation infrastructure. The world relies on Rotary to tackle these global challenges, and to set an example for others to follow.
