The doctors of the Teaching Hospital of El Fasher, capital of North Darfur, as well as the Wad Madani Hospital in the capital of central Sudan’s El Gezira state, embarked on a strike on Monday.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga from El Fasher, capital of North Darfur, a doctor said that they temporarily stopped their work after a member of the paramilitary Central Reserve Police slapped a female colleague when she refused to give a priority treatment to his wife.

“The authorities should immediately put an end to such violations,” he said.

The medics of Wad Madani Hospital embarked on a general strike on Monday in protest against the non-payment of their allowances for two months.
