WAM

The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has launched a health education programme during the holy month of Ramadan.

The ‘Ma’kom in Ramadan’ initiative aims to highlight the most important healthy habits and food practices that people should adopt and maintain during the month-long fast.

According to the ministry of health, the goal is to help raise awareness and encourage people to opt for healthier food options when buying groceries.

The programme includes healthy meals and recipes by social media influencers, Ramadan competitions, and the ’Gym with You’ initiative, which includes online physical training sessions.

Dr. Hussein Abdel Rahman Al Rand, Assistant Undersecretary for Health Clinics and Centers, said this programme is part of the Ministry’s commitment to enhancing people’s awareness about the importance of embracing healthy lifestyles during Ramadan by focusing on healthy nutrition and physical exercise.

He stressed that healthy eating is one of the most important factors for enhancing the immunity system and preventing diseases, especially during these challenging times.
