South Korean doctors have voted to go on strike later this month in protest of the government's plan to introduce telemedicine and other contentious medical policies, the doctors' association announced Saturday.

In January, doctors threatened to go on strike in March unless the government changes its plan to introduce telemedicine and other programs. Neighborhood doctors fear telemedicine would lead to a reduction in their income as they suspect patients would favor larger hospitals.

The Korea Medical Association said it held a vote from Feb. 21-28 and 76.69 percent of those who cast ballots voted to strike.

The walkout is set to begin on March 10.
