Polio (also known as poliomyelitis) is a highly contagious disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system. Children younger than five years old are more likely to contract the virus than any other group. Malaysia is Polio free, however, polio is still persistent in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria. Polio is transmitted through oro-faecal transmission thus we are still at risk due to migration. Rotary International (RI) has contributed significantly through efforts to eradicate Polio.
ROTARY INTERNATIONAL IS ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN IMMUNISATION PROGRAMME IN AFFECTED COUNTRIES. ROTARY CLUB OF KINTA STRONGLY SUPPORTS THIS.
Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain. Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot, or bursts.
NASAM creates much awareness about stroke. They encourage everyone to take a more proactive role in caring for themselves. NASAM has centres in different parts of the country including Ipoh, where they provide rehabilitation services.
NASAM HIGHLIGHTS THAT THERE IS LIFE AFTER STROKE.
Healthy lifestyle is not only about eating a variety of healthy foods, it highlights being physically and mentally active as well. Eating healthy choices, being physically and mentally active is the best way to prevent illnesses.
LIFE IS NOT MERELY BEING ALIVE BUT BEING WELL.
