Doctors' Strike in Pakistan: Historical Precedents

I've been given some articles about global strikes made by doctors in different parts of world, so as to link it with the current strike that took place in Punjab of Pakistan. This strike was made by all of 11,000 of junior government doctors who're working 90 hours per week and paid less than well off chefs, police Constables, or even teachers in many schools. Also, i'm studying the ethical question related to a doctor protesting, abandoning his patients, which is portrayed or is perceived by general community as horrifying and unimaginable. I'd only request ourselves to put ourselves in doctors' shoes, and see how things go about.

Following are some of the global strikes which have striking similarities with Punjab strike that i'm studying currently

- A decade of conflict and strikes by Malta Doctors & Medical Students
- European Doctors Migrate & Protest against Low Pay & Poor Working Conditions

Moreover, i've been given journal articles on the ethical question of doctors protesting. Will update more when i finish reading stuff.
