Emphasizing the importance of building the hospital, he said that it is most greatly delightful and courageous for the Party to see the people and the rising generations enjoy advanced medical service to the full and lead a highly civilized life in good health under the care of the socialist public health system.

Our Party set it as a political matter of maintaining and glorifying the image of the Korean-style socialism and as a crucial task to which top-priority state efforts should be directed under whatever conditions and environments to prop up the field of public health, he said.
