Child and Health

Various medical service activities took place in the DPRK to mark Child Health Day on November 20.

The primary health care facilities (ri people’s hospitals, polyclinics and clinics) across the country administered a blue capsule of vitamin A (100 000 IU) to children aged 6 to 11 months and a red capsule of vitamin A (200 000 IU) to U-5 children before measuring the middle upper arm circumference and screening the scars of BCG vaccination.

Health workers conducted health education “Respiratory infection and its prevention” for mothers and taught children a correct handwashing method while visiting their houses and at the hallways to the vaccination rooms.
