Health crisis in Migori county as doctors go on strike.
Health crisis is looming in Migori County as Doctors go on strike over unimplemented Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).
The Kenya Medical Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) Nyanza region chairperson Kevin Osuri confirmed the strike saying 52 doctors will be affected.
Mr. Osuri observed that Migori County governor Okoth Obado has been notified about the strike.
The Medics are pushing for an increase pay, allow for study leave and restore dilapidated public health facilities, among other issues.
Migori county executive committee health (CEC) Dr. Isca Olouch has asked the doctors to return to work as they have implemented a huge percentage of the CBA and promised to implement the remaining.
