On the 15th anniversary of the signing of the North Korean Human Rights Act into law, HRNK highlights the health and human rights status of the children of North Korea. After 61 interviews conducted in China and South Korea, HRNK's latest report, Lost Generation: The Health and Human Rights of North Korean Children, 1990–2018, applies a public health perspective that treats health as a human right that must be guaranteed to every child in North Korea without discrimination.

Please join HRNK for a presentation by the author, Courtland Robinson as well as a discussion with Roberta Cohen and Marcus Noland. Please stay tuned for remarks by esteemed Congressional representatives.
