Doctor strike in Mozambique may affect access to health care

In defiance of Mozambique law prohibiting strikes by essential public service workers, doctors in Mozambique have gone on strike to protest pay and working conditions. It is not yet clear how widespread the strike is or if it is affecting access to health care. At the central hospital in Maputo, the national capital, the situation is described as normal. Travellers with on-going health needs should be aware that this strike is underway and exercise caution to ensure any medical needs, such as prescriptions or other health care, are met.
