This month's theme is the Rotary
Disease Prevention and Treatment Month
 
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 health care.
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.

Join Rotary and work on projects to prevent and treat disease.
Give now to support a polio-free world.

Each month of the calendar year is celebrated in Rotary with a different theme.
Each club throughout the Rotary world is encouraged to concentrate on programs to promote each of these months.

Rotary focuses on Community Service and promotes International Peace and Understanding.
