Detesting atest strike action by health workers

Liberian health workers assigned at the ELWA and John F. Kennedy Ebola Treatment Centers in Monrovia are reported to have staged a strike action early this week. The go-slow action by the health workers, according to an official of the Liberian Health Ministry, was in demand of the August 2014 salaries. The strike action followed a meeting of the minds between the workers and officials of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare on August 29, 2014 in Monrovia, regarding increment in their salaries under the current emergency after they (health workers) had earlier demanded an increment of US$1500.00 for nurses and US$3000.00 for Doctors.

New anti-Ebola measures welcomed, But…

Like President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf intimated in one of her recent addresses to the nation, the difficulty in controlling the current outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease in Liberia is the direct result of persistent denials, cultural varying practices, disregard for the advice of health workers and disrespect for the warnings by the government.
