A 48-hour nationwide health workers strike is scheduled to take place across Peru on Tuesday, September 29. The strike has been organized by the National Social Security Medical Union of Peru (SINAMSSOP) and is being held to demand better working conditions and higher salaries. Health workers, including administrative staff, cleaning staff, and nurses are expected to participate in the strike.
Health services at hospitals are expected to be affected by the strike due to understaffing. Demonstrations are likely to occur outside of hospitals and medical facilities.
A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are expected near any demonstration site.
Individuals in Peru are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests due, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities. Those in Peru should also anticipate a potential increase in demand for care.
