Strike: India rejects Kenya’s request for doctors to replace strikers

Kenya Striking Doctors

India has rejected a request from Kenya to hire Indian doctors to address the ongoing crisis in its health sector which has been paralysed by a strike,

India’s telegraph newspaper reports that Indian officials said the country was not comfortable sending its health workers as it did not want to antagonize Kenyans.

If a deal had been struck the Indian doctors would have been offered $1,900 a month for their services.

Kenyan doctors working in public hospitals have been striking for more than a month insisting that the government honour a 2013 deal to improve their pay and working conditions. Currently, an entry level doctor earns $380 a month.

Last week, Kenyan doctors rejected a pay deal offered by the government that would have raised the entry level pay to $1,895 a month, saying it did not match the 2013 deal.
