A union representing general practitioners in the public sector has confirmed a countrywide strike planned for Monday, September 9, through Tuesday, September 10. Participants are demanding better pay, working conditions, and that the government addresses all the issues they have highlighted in the public health system.
Associated protests are possible in the coming days and weeks. Disruptions to public healthcare services, including longer wait times and canceled appointments, are also possible during the strike period.
Individuals in Tunisia are advised to keep abreast of the situation, confirm medical appointments, and anticipate disruptions to available health services.
