How to address North Korea’s dire humanitarian situation – NKNews Podcast Ep.72
Dr. Kee Park discusses maximum pressure, medical cooperation, and a recent trip to the DPRK

Month in Review

As South Korea moves forward with plans to dispatch $8 million worth of food aid to North Korea, humanitarianism should be above politics and beyond the scope of sanctions, argues Dr. Kee Park, one of the leading voices on food and medical aid to the DPRK.

In this week’s podcast, we look at the breadth and scope of humanitarian need in North Korea, the situation on the ground, and why Kim Jong Un might care more about healthcare than is often believed.

Dr. Kee Park is director of the North Korea program at the Korean American Medical Association and has led collaborations between U.S. and North Korean physicians since 2007.

About the podcast: The “North Korea News Podcast” is a weekly podcast hosted exclusively by NK News, covering all things DPRK: from news to extended interview with leading experts and analysts in the field and insights from our very own journalists.
