Area of Focus : Disease Prevention and Treatment Month.
This month includes:
World AIDS Day on the 1st and International Day of Disabled Persons on the 3rd of December
What is your Rotary Club doing to focus your efforts on Disease Prevention and Treatment?
Rotary's top priority is the eradication of polio, but our members take on far greater responsibilities to fight disease. They set up health camps and training facilities in undeveloped countries and in communities struggling with HIV/AIDS and malaria. They also design and build the infrastructure for doctors, nurses, governments, and partners to reach the one in six people in the world who can't afford to pay for healthcare.
How YOUR Rotary Club can focus on this important Area of Focus
  • Organize Medical Camp - Health Awareness for Eye Care / Dental Care
