The government takes responsible care of all people’s health in the DPRK.

The fourth session of the Sixth Supreme People’s Assembly, which was held in April 41 years ago, adopted the DPRK Public Health Law to promote the people’s health.

Thanks to the adoption of the law, the Korean working people live happily, free from worries over medical service as they enjoy the right to receive medical treatment to the full.

The essence of socialist medicine is preventive medicine, and the law requires that preliminary medical measures be taken to prevent people from contracting illnesses, the causes of diseases timely found and removed and constant efforts directed to preventing the inflow and spread of any infectious diseases.

Now, the public health sector is stepping up efforts to put the indexes of the public health including the average lifespan of population and the prevention rate of contagious diseases on the world’s advanced level and provide people with more hygienic and cultural environment by further developing the socialist public health.

Especially, it makes sure that thoroughgoing measures are taken for the prevention of various diseases by enhancing the role of household doctors.

And preventive and curative institutions at all levels are encouraged to introduce advanced diagnosing and curing methods as required by the development trend of modern medical science and improve the quality of medical services on a high level, including the first-aid medical service, by further completing the telemedicine service system.

All medical workers are inspired to have high skills and warm human love and give full play to the spirit of devoted service in their medical service activities for the promotion of the people’s health.

The country makes sure that medicine and medical appliances factories push ahead with modernization, actively introduce biological engineering, nano-technology and other advanced technologies, ensure the domestic production of raw and other materials and mass-produce efficacious and useful medicines and medical appliances.

We are determined to develop the country’s public health as the most advanced and superior one so that people can truly benefit from the socialist public health system.
