Officials of the Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) are currently held up in a meeting with the union's National Executive Council (NEC).
NEC is expected to approve an offer made in a return-to-work-formula presented by the government to KMPDU members during a meeting on Sunday. The return-to-work formula includes the implementation of the Musyimi task force's report and the formation of a health service commission.
Salaries of registrars at the Kenyatta National Hospital and the Moi Referral and Teaching hospital will also be addressed by the government. Doctors are expected to call off their nationwide strike after the NEC meeting. The strike that is in its fourth week has crippled operations in public hospitals across the country.
