The strike has left Karachi’s Civil Hospital, the main government hospital in the region, desolate and its operating rooms empty.

For the last several days, OPDs have been closed at all of Karachi’s major hospitals, forcing the city’s poorest patients and their families to seek care in pricey private clinics.

Similar circumstances exist in other cities, including Hyderabad, Nawabshah, Larkana, and Jacobabad, where hospital medical personnel is still on strike, causing people to rush to private hospitals, clinics, and medical facilities.

It should be mentioned that the Grand Health Alliance is now organizing demonstrations in support of the closure of the health risk allowance at all government hospitals in Sindh.

Shahid Iqbal, a nursing leader, said that all government medical personnel have been protesting for the past 25 days in Sindh and have not been carrying out any tasks besides responding to emergencies. Iqbal urged that a health risk allowance be given.

In the meanwhile, patients have called on the province’s government hospitals to treat patients and order the striking medical professionals to cease their strike.
