Health Minister Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi joined hundreds of people in a walk on Friday morning at Tehran’s Enqelab Sports Complex to mark the first day of the National Health Week. “Almost 50% of Iranians are overweight, and are living with diabetes and/or blood pressure, and a walking routine can help treat or reduce such conditions,” he said addressing people during the walk, Mehr News Agency reported. The way to serve people in the health sector is to inform and inspire them to take preventive measures, because “no matter how much we spend on treatment it will never be enough,” he noted.
