Our teams are also working to strengthen general healthcare at health facilities at county and community level, with a focus on paediatrics, support for the management of children with malnutrition, sterilisation of medical equipment and infrastructure improvement.
Our activities in 2022 in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
Data and information from the International Activity Report 2022.
The medical humanitarian situation in DPRK reportedly deteriorated throughout the year. All international aid agencies have withdrawn from the country due to the ongoing border closures and strict movement restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the UN-led sanctions. The economic situation in the country appears to have worsened, with people facing severe shortages of food and medicines, and limited access to healthcare.
Despite restrictions, we continued to engage with the authorities, aiming to resume activities when possible.
