NGO Criticises North Korea Over Healthcare

Amnesty International criticises North Korea’s desperate state of healthcare system

Amnesty International (AI) say surgery without anaesthetics, unsterilised needles and epidemics worsened by malnutrition illustrate the desperate state of North Korea's healthcare system.

The organisation says food shortages have persisted since the 1990s famine and some North Koreans survive partly on grass, tree roots and bark.

It says healthcare is free for all, adding that many witnesses told it they have had to pay for all services since the 1990s.
