North Korea’s health ministry launches new website

Ministry of Public Health website lauds DPRK's successes in public health, details state's COVID-19 response

North Korea's Ministry of Public Health recently launched a new website featuring information on the country's healthcare system, leadership activities, and photos, as well as details of its efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

It's unclear when precisely the website -- available in English and Korean -- was launched, with the first article available covering an April 2019 visit by Kim Jong Un to the Yangdok Hot Springs Resort construction, but it appears to have come online in recent weeks.
