According to the United Nations, the COVID-19 pandemic has halted or in some cases reversed progress in global health. It has also shortened life expectancies. It’s more important than ever to provide quality health care and promote well-being for everyone, especially those who are most vulnerable, including mothers and children.
Rotary is working to provide communities with the help and training they need to improve health care for mothers and infants. Mobile prenatal clinics in Haiti, mobile cancer screening units in India, and support for home births in Nigeria are some of the ways our members are working to ensure that mothers and children have opportunities for a healthy future.
