S. Korea to Start Trial Operation of End-of-Life Care

October 23, 2017

(South Korean Herald) – Thirteen hospitals in South Korea will launch trial operations of end-of-life care this week, just over three months before a law on dying with dignity comes into effect, officials said Sunday. The law, which will take effect from February next year, was passed by the National Assembly in January last year and allows terminally ill patients to seek the right to die when there is no chance of recovery.
