Monrovia- Medical doctors in Liberia have reechoed their threat to shut down all medical facilities within the country while giving the government 48 hours to respond to their demands. Later, the doctors under the banner, Liberia Medical and Dental Association, (LMDA) in a press conference noted that their strike action would be relaxed for 48 hours only if government adheres to recommendations outlined in the resolution. The members of the Liberia Medical and Dental Association have in the same way complained that they are earning limited salaries without any benefits while some junior officials in government are earning far above them. The government can do that, it’s not huge money,” Dr. Hart said. However, Dr. Jallah has confirmed that the doctors’ concerns are important but attributed it to the past leadership refusal to address them.
