Hundreds of Zimbabwe’s public sector health workers have gone on strike over low wages and poor working conditions. The BBC reports that it follows a worsening economic crisis that has seen thousands of health workers leave public service in the last three years. The cost of food and services has more than doubled recently as a result of the war in Ukraine and Zimbabwe’s annual inflation reached just over 130% in May – one of the highest in the world. Nurses, senior doctors, and radiographers are among those expected to withdraw their services on Monday.
