Event

The Independent Syndicate of Public sector physicians has called on doctors to strike nationwide on Wednesday, November 4, and Thursday, November 5. The strike has been called for due to grievances over working conditions, salaries, and deteriorating health services. Organizers have also called for demonstrations outside the Ministry of Health in Rabat and other regional health directorates across the country.

The strike action may affect medical services at healthcare facilities and hospitals; emergency care services will likely still be available. A heightened security presence and localized disruption to transport are possible in the vicinity of associated demonstrations.

Advice

Those in Morocco are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate potential disruptions to the provision of medical services, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, and confirm medical appointments.
