Kenya agonises over medical standoff

Doctors and nurses defy plan to transfer control of national health care to local government.

    The crisis between the Kenyan government and health workers is leaving many patients without care.

    Now a court has banned doctors and nurses in public hospitals from going on strike. And the government warned those who defy the court order that they would be replaced.

    Medical workers said they are against the plan to transfer administrative control of the health care system from the national to local government.
