[Editorial] Kenya’s nurses strike takes its toll on health-care system

Strike action by government nurses in Kenya over poor pay and dreadful working conditions has led to the deaths of 12 patients who were not able to access vital services and care. Recent reports on Kenyan news wires described an 8-month-old child with severe malaria and anaemia not receiving the treatment he needed to survive. A critically ill elderly woman with asthma was left unattended for days. Patients with mental illness or substance addiction are being discharged or turned away, and maternity services are barely functioning.
