Rotary News Today
 
April is Rotary Maternal and Child Health Month
Maternal and Child Health Care, is one of Rotary’s Six Areas of Focus. Every day mothers risk their lives giving birth and millions of children die each year from treatable, preventable causes. Rotarians improve access to essential medical services for mothers and their children. These efforts are aimed at reducing the number of children under age five who die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation – a figure that is currently estimated at 7 million.
 
According to another estimate, more than 80 percent of maternal deaths can be prevented with access to reproductive health services and trained health care workers. Rotarians provide education, immunizations, birthing kits, and mobile health clinics to support these causes. Women are taught how to prevent mother-to-infant HIV transmission, how to breast-feed, and how to protect themselves and their children from disease.
