The Korean Medical Association (KMA) accepted the government’s offer of a meeting, Noh Hwan Gyu, President of the KMA said on March 12.

The KMA said, “The government had been strong headed. Now it changed its attitude. We welcome the change. We have felt some ethical burdens with another strike. As the government steps up, we will cooperate with them.”

The KMA also evaluated that some progress was made as the government said it will reconsider its proposal on virtual doctor visits, try pilot programs, and improve the national health insurance system.

But there is a doubt about the government’s sincerity. The KMA pointed the government misled some issues such as virtual doctor visits and the government’s accusation that the KMA broke the agreement recently made.

The KMA said another strike will be executed on March 24 if the government is not determined to resolve the issues at the meeting, cooperating with doctors.
