The number of policies for promoting the people's health and well-being is increasing with each passing day thanks to the policy of the Workers' Party of Korea making selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people.

The DPRK Law on Social Insurance and Social Security, Cabinet decisions for its implementation and Ministry of Labour directives make sure that in our country the working people who have lost working ability during work are fully provided with stable and beneficial working conditions, which is thoroughly guaranteed by law and institutionally.

The Social Pensioners House under the Pyongyang Municipal People’s Committee performs a mission to control the business activities of the light labour workshop management boards in the city in a unified way and to increase the number of those in recovery among medically judged light workers through the proper combination of curative work, nutrition and tonic-based treatment so that they can return to their previous workplaces.

Since it was inaugurated in 1962 in accordance with a Cabinet decision, the house has been actively promoting the interests and convenience of the light workers through regular guidance over the management and operation of such workshops.

The workshops pay nothing to the state thanks to the state policies and benefits.

The workshops plan production and service by themselves, and all their incomes and products are directed to their operation, the promotion of their workers’ health, the medical treatment and recovery of the workers and the improvement of their living standards. The house sees to it that the light labour workshop management boards select curative jobs, including varieties of repair or welfare services, for light workers according to their technical knowledge and skills and the medical judgments of their conditions, make their workplaces hygienic and cultured so that they can work in a clean and cultured environment and provide them with six hours of curative working time.

It has also strengthened its own material foundations to provide the workers with nourishing meals every day and supply them with tonics necessary for the recovery of their health.

In terms of economic profits, it is not an easy decision anyone could make to establish a state organization for temporarily disabled people, fix special working hours for them and supply them with tonics at the state expense to recover their health.

We will make positive efforts to implement the people-oriented policies of the WPK and the state, true to the people-first principle of the Party which regards man as the most precious being and looks up to the people as Heaven and its noble intention of devotedly serving them.
