Doctors in Kenyan public hospitals have ended their three-month strike following their signing of a return to work agreement with the government.
The agreement addresses issues of pay, working conditions as well as allowances.
The doctors went on strike in December demanding between a 150-180% pay increase.
An unknown number of people have died waiting for doctors to resume work as a result of not affording treatment at private hospitals.
Last month, doctors and medical practitioners in several private healthcare facilities in the country Kenya began a 48-hour strike.
This was in protest to the jailing of seven medical union officials for refusing to call off the strike in the public health sector.
