360



*The Month of December in Rotary
 is Disease Prevention and Treatment.*
December is Disease Prevention and Treatment Month
 on the revised 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.

*Disease Prevention and Treatment.*
Rotary's top priority is the eradication of polio,
 but Rotarians 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.
 1 billion people suffer from neglected tropical disease
 such as dengue fever and leprosy each year.
*Health Care*
1 in 6 people worldwide cannot pay for health care. 
100 million people are pushed into poverty each year
 because of medical costs.
 57 countries have fewer than 23 health workers for every 10,000 people.
 4.3 million doctors, nurses, midwives, 
and other skilled caregivers are needed worldwide
