Haiti - Health : Strike ends for medical residents
Monday, the hospital's resident physicians of the State University of Haiti (HUEH) announced the official end of the strike, which paralyzed the largest public hospital in Haiti since March 28 and thereafter all public hospitals across national territory.

"We have decided to lift the strike, following the commitments made by health authorities to satisfy our demands," said Dr. Roosevelt Aubourg, of the inter-hospital committee which emphasized in particular with satisfaction the adoption of the 2016-2017 budget Thursday by the Chamber of deputies https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18466-haiti-news-zapping-politics.html in which figure an additional 800 million gourdes to the health sector, which must now be ratified by the Senate to allow the authorities to fulfill their commitments.

"We learned that sanitation and rehabilitation work is underway in hospitals, that inputs are being delivered as we demanded," added Dr. Aubourg which highlights the agreement for gradual adjustment of fees for residents and interns, stating that the Government had promised a 200% increase in fees for residents and resident doctors, waiting to bring them to 25 and 30 thousand gourdes.

Notes that a follow up governmental commission of public hospitals has been put in place to avoid the repetition of such a situation...
