GENEVA (92 News) - A unique honor for the city of blessings, the Saudi city of Madinah has been acknowledged by the World Health Organization (WHO) as among the world’s healthiest cities.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued a certificate declaring Medina a healthy city. The city of the last prophet, Rehmatul Ulameen, Madinah is a place of mercy, blessings and bliss, where blessings and blessings abound at all times.

This city of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) has also been awarded a great honor by the WHO. The WHO has issued a certificate of a healthy city to Madinah.

Minister for Health Dr Tawfig bin Fawzan Al Rabiah presented the certificate to Prince Faisal bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Governor of Madinah Province.

According to the WHO, Madinah met all the international standards set for a healthy city. After reviewing various issues, the city of PBUH was declared healthy.

According to the SPA, the holy city gained the accreditation after a visiting WHO team said that it met all the global standards required to be a healthy city. Madinah is believed to be the first city with a population of more than 2 million to be recognized under the organization’s healthy cities program.

A total of 22 government, community, charity and volunteer agencies helped prepare for the WHO accreditation. The city’s integrated program included a strategic partnership with Taibah University to record government requirements on an electronic platform for the organization’s review.

The WHO also recommended that the university provide training to other national city agencies interested in taking part in the healthy cities program.

A committee chaired by the university’s president, Dr. Abdul Aziz Assarani, supervised 100 members representing the 22 government, civil, charity and volunteer agencies.

Criteria included meeting goals set by the Madinah Region Strategy Project and the launch of a “Humanizing Cities” program.

According to WHO, “a healthy city is one that is continually creating and improving those physical and social environments and expanding those community resources which enable people to mutually support each other in performing all the functions of life and developing to their maximum potential.”
