Heath Ministry calling for talks to resolve Medical Workers strike

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenya’s heath ministry on Thursday called for an urgent intergovernmental consultative meeting next week to address the grievances of health workers so as to find a lasting solution to the recurring industrial unrests.

Health Principal Secretary Nicholas Muraguri said the ministry was concerned by the frequency of the unrests because they were impeding the delivery of health services within the devolved units.

"We regret the suffering that Kenyans have experienced in the recent past and we wish to assure them that we are working round the clock to solve the matter," Muraguri said in a statement issued in Nairobi.

The meeting comes following concerns by the ministry over the disruption of health services to Kenyans.

Several strikes have been witnessed in various Kenyan counties, including Migori, Kakamega, Nakuru, Nairobi and Nyeri, disrupting operations in the health sector.

Muraguri maintained that the ministry would continue offering policy guidance to county governments as it was committed to averting strikes in future.

Health workers have raised a number of concerns which range from personal remuneration, harmonization of salaries, staffing, promotions, work environment and opportunities to further training.
