Community Health Nurses Declare Indefinite Nationwide Strike Starting May 31

Community Health Nurses Association of Ghana has declared an indefinite strike nationwide starting Tuesday May 31.

National President of the Association, Esther Bamfo addressing the press said they are embarking on this action due to failure of the Health Ministry and Nurses and Midwifery Council to maintain their name COMMUNITY HEALTH NURSES to NURSES HEALTH ASSISTANT.

Also, the Health Ministry have denied their members access to further their education which could earn them promotion.

Meanwhile they are their own Nurses and assistants in the facilities in many of remote areas nationwide.
