"Immunity": The First Virtual Forum to Promote Coronavirus Awareness
In a community initiative of sustainable impact to raise awareness regarding immunity, stc, as a digital enabler, is lending its support to the Immunity Forum (Manaah), the first virtual forum in the region which offers an interactive experience replicating real forums.
Since individuals' health and immune systems affect the overall health of the community, the Forum promotes immunity concepts through three pillars: thinking, nutrition and behavior. The two-day Forum will discuss how important it is for individuals to take care of their health and strengthen their immune system to successfully fight diseases and pandemics. The Forum will have guest speakers specialized in positive thinking and behavioral habits and their impact on the immune system, making the Forum, which is an initiative by Add Enterprise, a credible source to increase individuals' knowledge regarding immunity as a comprehensive concept related to all their life aspects.
With a 3D virtual wing for the digital solutions it provides to enrich people's lives in line with the change in the consumption pattern, stc is taking part in the Forum through a guest speaker that will remotely give a detailed explanation about digital platforms for which demand has doubled, especially considering stc's success in accommodating the great growth in demand for its services due to the 1128% growth in telecommuting. My stc, which provides over 95% of the company's services in a digital form, including purchase and free delivery of devices, is a great example of stc's success in line with Dare Strategy's digital transformation objectives.
stc's participation in the Immunity Forum is a reflection of the Company's commitment to supporting community initiatives raising awareness about Coronavirus prevention in partnership with governmental and private entities. In this regard, stc has cooperated with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah in addition to the Communications and Information Technology Commission in the dissemination of around 2 billion awareness messages to citizens and residents.
