Established on July 11, Juche 74 (1985), the Population Centre of the DPRK is a consultative organ for the population policy of the country which makes researches in population and reproductive health.

It has taken three censuses and gathered and analyzed information on various population issues and reproductive health and family planning, thus making a contribution to mapping out the population development strategy and reproductive health plan for the country. It has made the national immunization survey, the national adult tobacco survey, the national maternal mortality survey, the national malaria survey and the baseline survey of demographic and reproductive health in the UNFPA-supported areas, the family planning need assessment, the survey for fertility awareness among women, etc.

According to the State’s strategy for reproductive health, it has conducted researches for promoting the family planning which helps a mother give birth to her desired baby in a desired period, enhancing the quality of reproductive health service in the public health sector, and protecting mother’s health, including healthcare before and after childbirth, assistance in childbirth, illness treatment and safe abortion.

It has also rendered services to the economic development of the country through researches on health intervention for population ageing, calculation of demands for dwelling houses, labour resources of urban women, rational distribution of population based on water and land resources, etc.

The centre publishes a quarterly paper “Population Newsletter” and a biannual “Population Centre Bulletin”, and disseminates various kinds of multimedia and publications on knowledge and common sense related to population and reproductive health.

It cooperates with the UNFPA, WHO, UNICEF and other international bodies and NGOs.

In cooperation with WHO, it has amended and supplemented the DPRK Law on Tobacco Control and is implementing it to the letter.

Every year it organizes events to observe the World Population Day and the International Day of Midwife under the sponsorship of the national coordinating committee of the UNFPA.

It also conducts academic exchanges and joint researches with its foreign counterparts.
