Muslim Nations Urged To Address Health Needs

Member nations of the Organization of the Islamic conference (OIC) who met at Kuala Lumpur were addressed on the state of their health affairs .

The OIC nations, which range from the wealthy oil-rich Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to Somalia and Afghanistan, have 1.3 billion people.
