Title: Islam with the internet could do much to prevent disease
Authors: Husseini, Abdullatif

Issue Date: Oct-2001
Publisher: ResearchGate
Abstract: Modern public health has paid little attention to prevention tailored towards Muslims even though the Islamic population now numbers over 1 billion. Religion is a major component of the social life of many communities throughout the world, but in disease prevention we often use the concept of “one size fits all,” with little recognition of religion or culture. Religion’s positive influences can be incorporated into a strategy for health promotion and disease prevention by using recent developments in information technology
