Well-Dying Bill & Standardizing Traditional Medicine

Printer-friendly version

Two new medical initiatives are moving forward in South Korea.
The Health Ministry has announced efforts to standardize Korean traditional medicine, and the National Assembly has passed a “well-dying” bill that by 2018 will allow patients with “no hope of recovery” to end their lives by refusing life-sustaining treatment. Korea FM discussed the changes with Rob Jonquière, a retired doctor and World Federation for Right to Die Societies Communication Director, and Dr. Raimund Royer, the first non-Korean to learn and practice Korean traditional medicine.
