In brief

This programme update covers all programmes supported by the International Federation in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), with a focus on the integration of the different programme components, namely health and care (including water and sanitation), disaster management and organizational development. As volunteers in the communities and Red Cross staff at provincial and branch levels are key in the implementation of the different programmes, it is crucial to ensure that resources are used in the most efficient way.
