Nigeria: Doctors Protest Over Lack of Equipment Amid Pandemic

(TELESUR) – NARD groups make up an estimated 40 percent of Nigeria’s medical personnel.

Nigeria’s National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) Monday started a strike to demand the government provide better health supplies and protective equipment.

“A decision to commence on a total indefinite strike with an exemption only for COVID-19 treatment centers has been taken,” NARD tweeted.

As the NARD announcement explicated, the strike is effective on Monday, June 15.

According to NARD president Dr. Aliyu Sokomba, health workers demand appropriate personal protective equipment and the restitution of 26 healthcare workers in Jos University Teaching Hospital to their positions and salaries.
