Our health is everything. Yet 400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care. We believe good health care is everyone’s right.

Disease results in misery, pain, and poverty for millions of people worldwide. That’s why treating and preventing disease is so important to us. We lead efforts both large and small. We set up temporary clinics, blood donation centers, and training facilities in underserved communities struggling with outbreaks and health care access. We design and build infrastructure that allows doctors, patients, and governments to work together.

Our members combat diseases like malaria, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and polio. Prevention is important, which is why we also focus on health education and bringing people routine hearing, vision, and dental care.


Disease does not prevent itself. We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases. Rotary members have hundreds of health projects underway around the world at any given time.


Our members use their extensive experience and leadership to fight Alzheimer’s disease and dementia through education and collaboration.


We are dedicated to a malaria-free world through treatment and prevention.


We are dedicated to permanently ending polio. Rotary members have spent over 30 years fighting polio, which is now almost fully eradicated.


The Rotary Foundation is changing the world by providing grants for projects and activities around the globe and in your own backyard.
