Last year the Korean Family Planning & Maternal and Child Health Association drew up the guidelines for implementing national family planning in cooperation with the Ministry of Public Health of the DPRK. The guidelines highlight the issues of guaranteeing clients’ sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR) and quality of care.
The association actively disseminates information about SRH in target areas.
In particular, it shifted the main areas of its activities to rural and mountainous areas.
Last year, it provided nearly 100,000 applicants with 316,000 SRH services, and from this year it is going to vastly expand the range of services.
“Our association which became a full member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation in November last year will continue to strive for ensuring fairness in activities, building up the ranks of volunteers and strengthening bonds with donors at home and abroad and different partners,” said So Hyon Chol, executive director of the KFP&MCHA.
