  We contribute to realizing a digital inclusion society where everyone benefits.

The Department of Digital Inclusion leads the realization of a digitally inclusive society so that all citizens can participate in social and economic activities and enjoy the benefits of digital technologies without discrimination or exclusion.

As digital technology spreads, we are building social systems and promoting comprehensive policies so that all citizens can universally enjoy the benefits of digital technology.

Through nationwide digital learning centers, we provide services that enable all citizens to receive digital education for their daily needs close to their homes.

We support improving the accessibility of web and mobile applications and kiosks so that the digitally disadvantaged can use digital services quickly and conveniently. We also provide a real-time communication relay service that enables accessible communication for the hearing and speech impaired with difficulty using the telephone.

In addition, we support the prevention and resolution of a dysfunctional information society through education and professional counseling for life-cycle smartphone addiction prevention based on NIA Internet Addiction Prevention Centers (18 locations) nationwide, customized digital ethics education, and awareness campaigns.
