The World Health organization (WHO) has declared Madinah Munawarrah as one of the heathiest cities in the world, according to a report appearing in The Arab News. The city got its new status after a team of WHO visited the holy city and gave its report based on global standards required for a city to be declared healthy.
“A healthy city is one that is continually creating and improving those physical and social environments and expanding those community resources that enable people to mutually support each other in performing all the functions of life and developing [them] to their maximum potential”, WHO says in its criteria for nominating a healthy city.
