Pyongyang, January 29 (KCNA) -- Big efforts have been directed to reinforcing the public health sector in the DPRK.

In recent years, many hospitals and medical appliances and pharmaceutical factories, including the Ryugyong Dental Hospital, the Jongsong Pharmaceutical General Factory and the Taedonggang Syringe Factory, were built or reconstructed under detailed guidance of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

The Myohyangsan Medical Appliances Factory, whose reconstruction is now nearing completion, is also associated with deep care of the Supreme Leader.

He visited the factory in August Juche 107 (2018) and October last year to take important steps for turning it into a model one playing a leading role in the country's medical appliances industry.

Looking at trial medical apparatuses produced by the factory, he said that it is important to produce lots of urgently needed medical apparatuses but they have to be of high quality, above all, and it is precisely an issue related to the outlook on the people.

At the 5th Plenary Meeting of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea held in December last year, the Supreme Leader stressed that public health is a major criterion of the image of socialism through which the people directly enjoy the advantages of our system. -0-
