On June 16, doctors throughout Mauritania suspended their nationwide strike - launched on May 7 - for two weeks to facilitate negotiations with the government. Normal operations are expected on Monday, June 18. However, the strike will likely resume following the two-week period if demands are not met.
Doctors are protesting poor working conditions and a lack of medical supplies, while also demanding an increase in their salaries.
Individuals in Mauritania are advised to monitor developments to the situation and avoid any related protests as a precaution.
