The campaign utilizes dozens of smart display screens to announce important health messages at places such as Prince Mohammad bin Abdulaziz International Airport, the Haramain High Speed Railway Station, shuttle buses, pilgrim reception centers, malls, and various health cluster facilities. The messages cover a range of topics, including the dangers of direct sun exposure, heat exhaustion, dehydration, food poisoning, first aid, personal hygiene, and other health issues. This initiative is designed to ensure that pilgrims are well-informed and can take necessary precautions to maintain their health during the pilgrimage.
