Joint Health Sector Unions & Professional Associations to strike on August 1 over COLA

The Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA), Health Services Workers’ Union (HSWU) and Government and Hospital Pharmacists Association (GHOSPA) have also demanded a 20% Cost of Living Allowance (COLA).
