The nurses' union called for restoring an environment reconciliation, welcomed during the previous dialogue, without reaching confrontations or warnings by the Ministry of Health (Sesal).

It is also challenging the decision of the Sesal to hire professionals in the field as replacement workers.

Aneeah's affiliate statement demands a response from the Government of Juan Orlando Hernández to avoid violating the right to health of citizens.

Nurses said they would remain on strike until they reach a fair and non-discriminatory solution to the requests made by their union while accusing the government of treating them like "animals."

These protests by auxiliary nurses began last Monday, demanding a salary adjustment in one thousand lempiras (about 45 dollars) and 900 lempiras (around 36 dollars) by 2021.
