Fighting Disease

We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases like polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. We improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in developing areas.

Rotary has been working tirelessly in the area of eradicating Malaria in countries where the disease has historically been rife.

Australian Rotary Health is one of the largest independent funders of mental health research within Australia. We also provide funding into a broad range of general health areas, provide scholarships for rural medical and nursing.
Australian Rotary Health is a national, not-for-profit organisation which funds health research and provides community education about health in Australia. The organisation supports work on a broad range of health problems, but specialises in mental health. It is supported by Australian Rotary Clubs.

Each year approximately 1-in-5 Australians
will experience
a mental illness and in order
to help future generations of young Australians, we need to look ahead
through research and find out how
we can prevent this type of illness occurring.

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, Rotary has:

  • Reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project in the Philippines in 1979
  • Helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries
  • Contributed more than $1.8 billion toward eradicating the disease worldwide

Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.
