Côte d'Ivoire News Alert

Healthcare workers union begins five-day strike on November 5, affecting public hospitals in Abidjan and major cities

TIMEFRAME expected from 11/5/2018, 12:00 AM until 11/9/2018, 11:59 PM (Africa/Abidjan). COUNTRY/REGION Ivory Coast

Event

A union representing healthcare workers in Côte d'Ivoire began a five-day strike on Monday, November 5, affecting 90 percent of public health centers. The strike, which will last until Friday, November 9, was a result of failed negotiations with the government on Sunday, November 4, regarding wages and housing allowances. Two-thirds of the industry's workforce are expected to participate in the strike, including nurses, midwives, and administrative staff, though doctors will continue to work. Delivery rooms and surgery operating rooms are reportedly still functioning.

Advice

Individuals in Côte d'Ivoire are advised to confirm medical appointments, to anticipate longer waiting times at public medical facilities for the duration of the strike, and to avoid any potential demonstrations.
