AllAfrica.com is reporting that Ghana is bringing 170 doctors from Cuba to help mitigate the deficiencies in health care due to a strike over wages and training. The author writes:
“Health Minister Alex Segbefia said on Wednesday that several people have died without proper emergency attention since the strike began early this month.
