High quality health care is critical to mothers and children to prevent the more than 5.9 million estimated deaths of children under five who die each year from malnutrition, poor sanitation and inadequate health care.  Rotarians save lives by focusing on health care, education and economic opportunities which allow mothers and children to have productive lives.  In addition, reducing violence against women and children which may affect more than 30% of women is a focus of many Rotary projects around the world.
