Also, through its social media pages, MOH posted a series of important messages about the role of mental support in curing cancer through Patient’s Recovery Experience «Muta‘afi», in addition to an infographic about the importance of early detection of cancer to help increase the recovery rate, reduce mortality rate, increase treatment response rate and improve quality of patients' daily life. 

According to MOH, methods of prevention against cancer include maintaining a healthy weight, eating fruits and vegetables, exercising for 150 minutes weekly and avoiding direct smoking and secondhand smoking.
