Health interns to strike today over unpaid allowances


“The strike is by the health interns, whose allowances are to be paid through the facilitation of the Ministry of Health.

The health interns have not received their allowances since they started the internship in September 2021


“I bring you greetings from the National Secretariat of the National Health Students Association of Ghana (NAHSAG)

NAHSAG is the umbrella body for all health students and fresh graduates (Health Interns) from all health institutions across the country and the Diaspora at large.



The National Executive Officers by this notice, inform you of a possible strike action by all September and December 2021 batch of health (Allied Health, nurses, Midwives etc.) interns whose allowance is to be paid through the Ministry of Health, but it has not been paid since the internship.



The strike is a collective decision of majority of the health interns in a virtual meeting held on 19th June 2022.



Government’s silence on allowance payments and starving health interns under the Minister of Health for nine months is very unfortunate, and unacceptable.
