[Correspondence] The reality of the mortality statistics of the nurses’ strike in Kenya

I was relieved to see the despondent situation currently crippling Kenya’s health-care system brought to international attention in The Lancet’s Editorial (June 17, p 2350).1 The nurses’ strike, which began on June 5, follows closely on the back of a 90-day doctors’ strike that finished mere months ago and is rumoured to soon recur. As noted in the Editorial, the strike is a response to the government’s failure to uphold a Collective Bargaining Agreement, while millions of shillings are spent each day on campaigning for the upcoming presidential elections.
