North Korea needs medical equipment, says WHO (World Health Organization):

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

North Korea is in need of "substantial investments in healthcare" to provide, among other things, essential equipment, says the World Health Organization. "The Democratic People's Republic of Korea has a well established public health system, but outside the main cities there is a lack of basic amenities [and] essential drugs and equipment," said WHO director general Dr Gro Harlem Brundtland, following a visit to the capital city, Pyongyang. Dr Brundtland met with health minister Kim Su Hak, among other top authorities, during a visit to assess the country's health situation and to open a WHO office with a permanent representation there. The WHO has had an emergency co-ordination office in Pyongyang since 1997.
