Dear friends in Rotary,
 
Palermo, 1st April 2017
 

The World Health Organization states that each year 303 thousand women die in pregnancy or during childbirth, while 2.7 million new-born die within 28 days of their birth and 2.6 million are the stillbirths.

The WHO states that the majority of these cases could be avoided by means of adequate basic healthcare. It also states that official statistics are inaccurate as, in many cases, maternal mortality as well as neonatal deaths are not indicated to the sanitary systems. Improving mother and child health standards is, therefore one of the Millennium objectives of the United Nations to which Rotary International adheres and for whom Maternal and Childhood health issues is one of the fundamental avenues of service.

Rotary International’s action is based on careful analysis of the situation: Millions of children  die every  year before reaching the age of 5 due to malnutrition, the use of infected water, illnesses such as measles, TB, pneumonia, HIV, malaria, intestinal disease, poor medical assistance and inadequate health conditions.

There is an increase of infantile mortality in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Southern Asia. Children born  in poverty have almost twice the chance of dying before the age of 5 compared to those born to more affluent families. The offspring of educated mothers, even those mothers who have barely completed primary schooling, have a better chance of survival compared to those whose mothers are completely illiterate.

Maternal mortality has been reduced by approximately two thirds in Eastern and Southern Asia as well as in North Africa. However the proportion of mothers who do not survive childbirth is 14 times higher  in underdeveloped regions if compared to developed regions. While more expectant-mothers are receiving pre-natal assistance only half the women living in developing areas receive the medical support they require.

Aware of this fact, RI has for decades offered the commitment of thousands of Rotarians and has favoured accessibility to quality medical assistance for mothers and children; RI finances training programmes for nurses, doctors, obstetricians and socio-sanitary operators; it distributes prevention instruments and pre-natal kits; it undertakes vaccination and immunization campaigns. RI has programmes for teaching mothers how to breast feed infants and maintain hygienic conditions, how to control children’s health by regular checks, how to avoid the transmission of the HIV virus from mother to child by encouraging the use of adequate medication and feeding with artificial.

RI also finances programmes of family planning, within the principles of the communities in which it operates, in the full awareness that 80% of maternal deaths can be avoided by means of services related to sexual and reproductive instruction particularly with regards to safe and efficient contraception.

Much has been achieved with regards to access to clean water and hygiene, with regards to training and instruction, prevention and cure of several disease such as polio, HIV and malaria.

Since the start of the new millennium, life expectancy has increased by 5 years with a consistent increase in the African region where life expectancy has increased by 9.4 years having reached the 60 year goal thanks, mostly, to progress made in the field of infantile survival and the control of malaria  and HIV.

Rotary’s International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.

2017-2018  R.I. President Ian H.S. Riseley

announces his presidential theme, Rotary: Making a Difference

 

Rotary International President-elect Ian H.S. Riseley made the case that protecting the environment and curbing climate change are essential to Rotary’s goal of sustainable service.

Riseley, a member of the Rotary Club of Sandringham, Victoria, Australia, unveiled the 2017-18 presidential theme, Rotary: Making a Difference, to incoming district governors at Rotary’s International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.

Environmental degradation and global climate change are serious threats to everyone, Riseley said. “They are having a disproportionate impact on those who are most vulnerable, those to whom Rotary has the greatest responsibility. Yet environmental issues rarely register on the Rotary agenda,” he said.

Environmental degradation is one of the major threats listed by the UN’s High-level Panel on Threats, Challenges, and Change.

Riseley added, “The time is long past when environmental sustainability can be dismissed as not Rotary’s concern. It is, and must be, everyone’s concern.”

The president-elect challenged every Rotary club to make a difference by planting a tree for each of its members between the start of the Rotary year on 1 July and Earth Day on 22 April 2018. Trees remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air, which slows global warming.

“It is my hope that the result of that effort will be far greater than the environmental benefit that those 1.2 million new trees will bring,” Riseley said. “I believe the greater result will be a Rotary that recognizes our responsibility not only to the people on our planet, but to the planet itself.”
