South Korea looks to expand public sector share of healthcare

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

South Korean minister of health, Hwa Joon Kim, is aiming to improve healthcare provision in the public sector in an attempt to head off moves to allow the country's nationals to be treated in international hospitals in the country's free economic zones (FEZs). Dr Kim said that there was concern that allowing South Korean nationals access to the hospitals could undermine the equality of healthcare in the country, as many would not be able to afford such treatment. She is looking to increase the public sector share of the health service from 10% to 30%.
