ABSTRACT
The article reports on the outbreak of various diseases in North Korea. Paratyphoid, whooping cough and a skin disease villagers call leprosy are spreading in the region. Two reporters interviewed travelers near the Sino-North Korea border area along the Tumen and Yalu rivers. Defectors in South Korea confirmed that they heard about epidemics in the North from their relatives. Villagers claim that medicines sent as humanitarian aid are not delivered to health care centers, but instead find their way to black markets.
