Several months ago at the Sunchon Cement Complex, a worker at a calcination workshop experienced an unexpected health issue. In response, an outreach medical team at the complex swiftly diagnosed the condition and promptly sent the worker to a hospital for timely treatment.

The establishment of such outreach medical teams several years ago marked a proactive approach to healthcare at production sites. Rather than waiting for workers to visit a hospital, medical workers with substantial experience formed these teams, providing on-the-spot medical attention.

This initiative has brought about positive changes, as workers now have the convenience of receiving treatment directly at their production sites. Skilled doctors identify and address health concerns promptly, ensuring timely intervention. Additionally, those unable to work due to health issues are reported to relevant household doctors for further assistance.

This model of healthcare extends beyond the Sunchon Cement Complex, with central-level hospitals in Pyongyang sending outreach medical teams to major industrial establishments across the nation. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea prioritizes healthcare accessibility, with workplaces hosting hospitals or clinics, residential districts having household doctors, and shop floors featuring outreach medical teams.
