Doctor/health worker strike in Ghana

Today, nurses and other health workers joined Ghana’s junior doctors in an indefinite strike protesting the new Health Service salary structure. Public hospitals and clinics are effectively shut down (critical patients are still being cared for). It doesn’t really affect Tay’s work at the PPAG clinic, though patients seem to be staying away. In an unrelated story, many Ghanaian pregnant women were trying NOT to deliver their babies on Tuesday (6/6/06), for fear of bringing the AntiChrist into the world.
