Minister of Culture and Information Dr. Abdulaziz Khoja addressed the closing ceremony of the “AIDS and the Media Conference” held in Jeddah last night. Speaking to the gathering, he thanked the conference participants and noted that the Islam calls on people to support one another. “This is what we should do, especially with people infected with AIDS, in order to stop the spread of the disease,” Dr. Khoja said. The media, he noted, plays an important and active role in the prevention of AIDS by publicizing its effects on the society.
