Medics on strike in East Darfur
Medical doctors working for the East Darfur Health Insurance decided to down their tools on Thursday, in protest against the deteriorating work environment and the low remuneration levels.
In a statement on Thursday, the medics gave the director of the Health Insurance Company 72 hours to meet their demands, including a salary increase, provision of life-saving medicines and equipment for diagnostic tests, proper furniture for their offices, and transportation services to their homes.
They said they have been suffering from dire working conditions for a long time. Yet they continued working to serve the sick and vulnerable in the society.
