Abstract

The over-extended on-and-off strike in Tanzania early this year was a result of unfruitful negotiations between the government and medical doctors. Of greater concerns are the doctor’s moral and ethical obligations toward the service users (citizens) during the strike. This paper discusses the moral and ethical concerns pertaining to doctor’s strikes in the Tanzanian context.
