Ghanaian doctors call-off strike

from BBC

Reports say Ghanaian doctors have suspended a strike over working conditions.

According to the reports, outpatient services at state-run hospitals were closed for the past three weeks, because of the dispute.

The BBC quotes the Ghana Medical Association as saying the Government had failed to define working conditions for medical staff, including overtime pay.

The Association announced Friday, August 21, 2015, that its members would return to work as talks with authorities were continuing.

The decision will come as a relief to President John Mahama's government.
The Government is said to be under pressure to control spending, the BBC also said.

The measure is part of an International Monetary Fund’s deal to  revive economic growth in the country.
