Doctor strikes aggravate healthcare collapse in Port Sudan

The army-controlled coastal city of Port Sudan has become a refuge from the war raging to the west, but its health system is in near collapse due to power cuts and scarce supplies – and staff shortages now exacerbated by striking doctors. Reuters reports that doctors and nurses in the Red Sea city say they have not been paid for four months, as the Sudanese government’s budget has been decimated by fighting between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces.
