Allied health workers on sit-down strike

Members of the Ghana Federation of Allied Health Professionals (GFAHP) have declared an indefinite sit-down strike beginning today, Monday, 20 May 2019.

GFAHP said the strike has become necessary following the government’s failure to resolve its members’ grievances which have pended for two years.

The health professionals, in a statement, wondered why the governing board of the Allied Health Professions Council has “not been inaugurated after 29 months of its dissolution, especially in the light of the fact that all other health sector regulatory bodies have had their boards.”

They also said, “Nothing has been done with regard to the non-inclusion of the Allied Health Professionals in the proposed amendments to the Governing Boards of the Ghana Health Service and Teaching Hospital Act, 1996 (Act 525).”

Members of GFAHP said although they are grieved by the strike since the health of their patients will greatly be affected, they are appealing to the government to intervene immediately for proper resolution.
