Doctors at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in the Ashanti region have initiated a strike set to commence effective today, March 13, 2024, citing housing challenges.

Approximately 20 doctors and other medical staff members are confronting potential eviction from their residences in Danyame, which are in close proximity to the hospital.

They claim to have received an eviction notice from a private developer, mandating them to vacate the premises within a week.

Following an emergency meeting held today at KATH, the disgruntled doctors have unanimously decided to halt their services starting tomorrow, in pursuit of resolving their housing predicament.

Dr. Michael Leat, Chairman of the Komfo Anokye Doctors Association (KADA), asserted that they will resume work once suitable housing arrangements have been secured.

Throughout the strike period, they intend to only cater to patients currently admitted, with no new cases being attended to.
