Health North-korea

Contact your GP around eight weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations or other preventive measures. You must have comprehensive travel and medical insurance and accessible funds to cover the cost of any treatment abroad and repatriation. Health facilities and standards of clinical hygiene in North Korea are basic, even for foreigners. Anaesthetics are sometimes unavailable and medicines, when available, are sometimes out of date and inappropriately prescribed. Evacuation is likely to be necessary for serious illness/injury and invasive surgery should be avoided if at all possible. Facilities for dental treatment are also bad.

Please ensure that you take sufficient quantities of any medication that you may require, as local purchase of most foreign-manufactured medicines is not possible and local medical supplies are severely limited.
