The Foundation's areas of
focus concentrate the efforts of each of us to strengthen the impact of our
projects locally and globally. One of these areas is mother and child health.
Rotary and the World Health Organization are
organizing a meeting at WHO headquarters in Geneva on October 21-22, 2022, to address this issue.
WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and
Rotary International President for 2022-2023 Jennifer Jones will
discuss the work the two organizations have done together for decades to
eradicate polio and how they will continue to work together on a healthier
future for mothers and children. Experts in polio, vaccines, and maternal
and child health will present the many opportunities for children who have been
saved from polio and, along with their mothers, other vaccine-preventable
diseases, to benefit from the preventive and life-saving services associated
with it. This will allow mothers to have a positive pregnancy experience
and young children to reach their full developmental potential.
