Government has responded to publication on government’s document presented to striking doctors on the professional allowance. The doctors are demanding 50% of their basic salary per month.

The initial publication inadvertently suggested that government has accepted to pay the doctors the professional allowance.

A statement signed by the Health Minister, Alexander Segbefia says that is not the case”
