Iraqi doctors reportedly go on open-ended strike from September 19 over working conditions; disruptions to healthcare likely

TIMEFRAME expected from 20/9/2020, 12h00 until 30/9/2020, 11h59 (Asia/Baghdad). COUNTRY/REGION Iraq

Event

Iraqi doctors have reportedly gone on strike from Saturday, September 19, in protest against poor working conditions. The Ministry of Health has condemned the strike as against the law. The strike is to continue until the demands of the doctors, eight in total, are met. Local media report that the strike is taking place in all governorates except for Diyala and Anbar. The strike comes as Iraq witnesses a spike in coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases.

Associated demonstrations are possible during the strike action, with medical facilities, hospitals, and government buildings likely hotspot locations. The strike action is likely to affect medical services at healthcare facilities and hospitals; emergency care services will likely still be available.  

Advice

Those in Iraq are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate potential disruptions to the provision of medical services, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, and confirm medical appointments.
