<The Healthcare Personnel Support Act> was passed into legislation in consensus at the plenary session of the National Assembly on April 5. The Act will start being executed on October 6, six months from now. It is great to see the enactment, which has been longed for by over 800,000 healthcare workers, in 8 years since the KHMU initially proposed the Act in 2012.


According to the Act, a policy deliberation committee will be established within 6 months and a comprehensive action plan will follow, based on the systematic survey specific to different cases. In addition, with this, the central government will supposedly take more accountability for manpower supply and management.

It is also expected that a healthcare workers management center will be established to implement comprehensive policies and actions responsibly responding to healthcare personnel issues.


On April 5, the KHMU (Korea Health and Medical Workers Union, President Na Soon-ja) released a statement that the union was very pleased and wholly welcome the legislation of the Healthcare Personnel Support Act.

The Healthcare Personnel Support Act consists of 6 chapters and 20 articles with one additional clause.


The Act stipulates rules necessary to smoothly source healthcare workers, to improve working conditions and benefits, and to produce highly qualified talents. 

The Act is a very just law in a sense that it meets the needs of labor respect and patients’ safety. The KHMU will continue to work hard to set up a healthcare labor standard, based on the Act.
