Abstract

Recently, after the President's initiative action for "globalization of quality of life" by promulgating the ideal goal for coming 21th century, the Korean Government has established the 'National Welfare Planning Board' which has a historical duty to work out a long & medium-term blueprint for social security system in Korea. The matter of the promotion of national welfare is viewed as a difficult task to deal with, since it is very hard to tackle the matter by only a single government department, Ministry of Health & Welfare. Last year, with renaming the government department by Ministry of Health & Welfare, which was, in the past, named Ministry of Health & Social Affairs, the Government declared that the year of 1995 should be a launching year for advancing national health & welfare, in this respect, it has significant implications that 'National Welfare Planning Board' has been established, not in a sole department level but in the government inter-department level, and that the Board is co-headed by both the minister of Health & Welfare and the president of Korea Development Institute(KDI).
