Kenyan doctors start seven-day strike


March 15, 2024

Doctors in Kenya have started a week-long strike over delays by the government to deploy medical interns. They are also complaining about the poor working conditions they say they have to work under.

The Labour Court had earlier issued an order to halt the industrial action to make room for negotiations between the labour minister, the doctors’ union and employers today to find a solution.

But the union says it did not get the court order.

Kenya is facing a huge public health crisis.

With doctors in state medical facilities on strike, patients who need help will suffer.
