THE doctors' strike has intensified with the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA) issuing a statement this Wednesday saying it is withdrawing its members from hospitals until further notice. is in possession of a memorandum dated March 1.

"ZHDA would like to inform you that  GMOs will not be able to discharge their duties from 01 March 2017 until further notice".

On Tuesday, the association welcomed the move by nurses to down tools calling on Government to urgently address challenges affecting the health sector.

The latest development by nurses to down tools is likely to affect the health service delivery system in a big way since nurses form the bulk of health workers in Zimbabwe and are also the entry point to healthcare.

The rest of the civil service has threatened to go on strike on Monday over the outstanding bonus issue.
