Health workers from clinics and hospitals have called off a nationwide strike on Monday, July 22, after reaching an agreement with the government over better working conditions and improved salaries. Although protesters announced an immediate resumption of all health services, residual delays are to be expected, notably regarding medical appointments.
The strike was launched on July 15 and was expected to last at least 15 days. Health workers were demanding more government-backed regulation on compliance and a budget expansion for salaries, equipment, and infrastructure.
Individuals in Paraguay are advised to monitor the situation, and to confirm medical appointments.
