Muslim Clerics Urged to Help Fight AIDS

From Reuters

The Health Ministry in the United Arab Emirates has called on Muslim clerics to help combat the spread of AIDS.

“Preachers can do a lot in the drive against AIDS,” a ministry official said. “They can provide intellectual immunity against the killer disease.”

He said the Islamic Affairs and Endowments Ministry will prepare a program for clerics so they can warn about practices that can cause acquired immunity deficiency syndrome.

Twenty-two people died of AIDS in the Emirates in 1987.
