Structure of the Public Health System
The DPRK has a nationwide network of medical care centres comprising central and specialized hospitals, and hospitals and clinics in provinces, cities, counties (districts) and ri (dong) as well as in factories and enterprises.
Central and provincial people’s hospitals keep a register of the sick people across the country, and conduct research into refractory diseases and offer prophylactic treatment for them.
The specialist departments at the county (district) and city people’s hospitals deal with the people with chronic diseases, and the clinics in ri (dong) are major units for the district doctor system, which conduct a regular check-up of the residents.
Also, there are doctors in nurseries, kindergartens and schools.
