The WHO warned that too few countries have effective suicide prevention strategies in place.
It also explained that more than three-quarters of such deaths occur in low and middle-income countries.
According to the Korea Suicide Prevention Center, South Korea's suicide rate was 24.3 deaths for every 100-thousand people as of 2017, which is nearly twice the OECD average.
