Government to Shortly Disburse Health Workers’ Incentives


Health Minister Dr. Wilhemina Jallah says the long awaited incentives for health workers will soon be disbursed , adding that there is no need for health workers to protest.

After days to sit-home strike action, the Health Workers Union of Liberia (NAHWUL) in early October cutoff their strike action and returned to work based on a Memorandum of Understanding reached between the Union and the United Nations Resident Coordinator to Liberia to resolve the situation.

“No need to protest, no need to bang on doors, send your representative to speak with us peacefully and we will relay the message when you will receive your founding. We hope we all can work together peacefully so you can get your incentives. We’re not heartless, and we want to thank you for remaining peaceful,”

Dr. Jallah said when she addressed the media at the Ministry of Information regular press briefing.

Providing update on the current status of COVID-19 in the country, Dr. Jallah said there is a second wave of the pandemic, as recorded 94 cases in the second wave with 11 recorded today.
