Thousands of doctors and pharmacists in the west African state of Ghana last week withdrew emergency cover as part of a pay dispute.

The action was an escalation of a national strike that began on 8 April.

Ghanaian public service workers are being switched to a pay structure that means many people lose pay. Strikers are demanding no loss in wages or pensions.

The government is relying on police and military hospitals to provide emergency cover.
