The doctors working at Zalingei Hospital in Central Darfur embarked on an open-ended strike today, in protest against the non-payment of their bonuses and the deterioration of the work environment.

“We have been waiting for our bonuses to be paid for several months,” one of the striking medics told Radio Dabanga this afternoon.

“The state Ministry of Health keeps postponing the payment,” he said. “We therefore decided to stop working until we have been paid and the work environment has improved.”

He said that tomorrow the rest of the personnel will join the strike.
