The Aggrieved Health Workers’ Plights Need Urgent Attention

We are seriously concerned about the multiple challenges facing our health sector, particularly the apparent delay by the Government of Liberia(GoL) in meeting the demands of the aggrieved health workers who have since taken to the street nationwide as a means of drawing the attention of the GoL to their plights.

In furtherance of the nationwide strike by the health workers, on Thursday morning, September 26, 2019, aggrieved nurses of the nation’s number one referral hospital, the John F. Kennedy Memorial Center again staged a strike action in demand of the payment of what they called their delayed salary, including the controversial salary harmonization exercise.

The professional health workers laid down all of their medical gadgets, stood in front of the JFK main entrance on 21st Street in Sinkor, Monrovia under a heavy down pour of rain with thunder storm, chanted slogans and held placards with several inscriptions calling on national government to pay them, as life was becoming unbearable for them in the face of the economic hardship in the country

Frankly, the plights of the health workers are alarming, and therefore, require urgent attention.

Unlike politicians, mainly lawmakers who make fabulous salary, service providers like the health workers-doctors and nurses, among others usually earn a little that barely can sustain they and their family members.

While we sincerely acknowledge the commitment by the GoL that everything is being done to pay the aggrieved health workers nationwide, we, on the other hand, plead with the GoL to consider their plights as a matter of urgency.
We encourage the government to speed up the process so as to bring relief to these great service providers in our country.

    At this time it seems like Wordpress is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
