Doctors’ strike shuts down medical care in Nepal
The Nepal Medical Association says doctors demanding salary increases and improved security have refused to provide routine medical care throughout the country in a one-day protest.
The association that represents the doctors says nonessential medical services have been suspended Monday and only emergency treatment would be made available.
The association says it wants increased pay for doctors. Medical services are inexpensive in Nepal and doctors are not highly paid.
It is also demanding government-provided security after several incidents of physicians being beaten and hospitals ransacked by relatives of patients who have died.
