December is Disease Prevention and Treatment Month

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

Promoting Peace, Providing Clean Water, Saving Mothers and Children,
Supporting Education, Growing Local Economies, and Fighting Disease.
 
Rotary supports activities and training that reduce the cause and effect of disease. The largest example is undoubtedly the Polio Plus initiative - for more than 30 years Rotary's major focus has been the worldwide eradication of polio.

The Rotary Club of Hanover changed it's meeting schedule and structure - with positive results. This is a success story of how change in a Rotary club can help it become more engaged and more active in the community.
 
The crisis point was at the start of the new millennium - as Al Morrow put it:
"The decline came to a head in the few years after the turn of the century (2000). Our membership had dwindled to about 8 members (from a high of 30+) and something had to be done and in reality, thinking back, it could have gone either way."
