Health Workers Resume Work In Grand Bassa County

By Johnson Bob Liway, Grand Bassa County Correspondent


BUCHANAN, Feb 25 (LINA) – Health Workers at the Government Hospital Buchanan resumed work on Tuesday, following consultations with stakeholders and the National Health Workers Association of Liberia.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency Tuesday, Stephen Wannah, Administrator of the Liberian Government Hospital, confirmed that nurses and doctors have resumed work, but said that about 40% of them are still out of town waiting to be contacted to return to work.

He said today’s work at the hospital was focused on cleaning up the facilities which had been deserted for the past weeks, as a result of the strike action.

Wannah also told LINA that on Saturday last week, 10 health workers were dispatched from Monrovia by Health Minister Walter Gwenigale, to take up assignment at the hospital, when nurses and doctors failed to report to work on Friday, as directed by the Health Minister. 

Dr. Gwenigale gave the health workers up to Friday to return to work or be dismissed.

Mr. Wannah further disclosed that authorities of the Health Workers Association of Liberia, following consultations with relevant authorities, have agreed in principle for health workers to resume duty nationwide.

It can be recalled that on 17 February health workers nationwide staged a strike in demand of better salaries and incentives.
