Dr. Al-Rabeeah extended,  in his own name and on behalf of all employees of the Ministry of Health and health sector, the deepest thanks, appreciation, and gratitude to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince for their support, attention and generous patronage of the health sector, which will be reflected, Allah willing, on the health services, and achieve the aspirations of the citizens  and meet their health needs, as well as fulfilling the sought-after objectives of health services.
