The Health Professionals Association says a strike action will be carried out today covering the Central Province.
Chairman of the Association Ravi Kumudesh said the strike action was launched at the Central Provincial Council at 7am today.
He noted the strike action launched at the North Western Provincial Council yesterday ended at 7 this morning.
He added similar strike action will be carried out in all provinces across the country within this month.
Kumudesh said the strike action is being launched while minimizing the inconvenience to the public, in order to awaken the Ministry of Health, the subject Minister and state officials.
Commenting on issues faced by Health Professionals, Kumudesh said a majority of issues were freshly created or forced on them.
He added a majority of issues were resolved through the Subodhini committee report, adding however no one knows what happened to the report.
He claimed there is no individual to discuss the demands of Non-Medical Professionals within the Health Ministry adding it has become a biased institute.
Ravi Kumudesh said Health Ministry and the health sector cannot continue in such a manner.
He further said the Health Ministry has failed to repay debt to service providers adding therefore operations are being disrupted.
He claimed the public is being burdened and have to bear an unnecessary cost as price controls on medicines are not being imposed at present.
Kumudesh said the trade union action will continue as the health sector cannot function with an inconsistent management and inactive service.
