“We, at the Ministry of Health and Prevention, are committed to safeguarding children's rights by deploying every resource and effort to this end and prioritizing the health of our children. By offering a broad spectrum of medical, educational, and preventative services, we strive to preserve their well-being, ensuring they can grow and develop in the healthiest and most supportive environment possible," Al Owais added.
