The United Arab Emirates has deported 1,000 people found to have the AIDS virus since it launched a campaign to halt the disease in 1985, a health official said in Abu Dhabi. "Out of 1 million people tested for AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome), one per 1,000 were found positive," health assistant undersecretary Abdul Rahim Jaafar said. The UAE requires new residents to take an AIDS test before they are allowed to stay. Over two-thirds of the population of 1.6 million are foreign.

The Health Ministry in the United Arab Emirates has called on Muslim clerics to help combat the spread of AIDS. "Preachers can do a lot in the drive against AIDS," a ministry official said. "They can provide intellectual immunity against the killer disease." He said the Islamic Affairs and Endowments Ministry will prepare a program for clerics so they can warn about practices that can cause acquired immunity deficiency syndrome. Twenty-two people died of AIDS in the Emirates in 1987.
