Unions representing medical workers have called for newly-hired doctors throughout the country to stage a three-day strike starting on Thursday, September 20, to demand the payment of salary arrears. During the strike disruptions to health services, including longer wait times and reduced services, are possible. Demonstrations by striking workers are also possible during the strike, notably in the capital Tunis. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are to be anticipated near all demonstration sites.
Individuals in Tunisia are advised to avoid any form of protest as a precaution, keep abreast of the situation, and confirm medical appointments.
