Foreign Correspondents Ep.203
Importance of public healthcare looms large

A nationwide strike of doctors in South Korea, which began last month against the government’s planned medical reforms, came to an end, after the government and the Korean Medical Association reached a deal to revisit the reform plans when COVID-19 stabilizes. The doctors returned to work, but the debate still continues. Among the four key points the doctors are opposing are an increase in medical school admission quotas and the establishment of public medical schools. In this week’s edition of Foreign Correspondents, we sit down with our panel of journalists to delve into room for improvement in South Korea’s national healthcare system and examine healthcare policies around the world.
