In November 2019 there was an industrial dispute between medical professionals, including doctors and the Government of Zimbabwe regarding salaries. This resulted in doctors and key frontline health care personnel going on strike. In the end, over 77 doctors working in government  hospitals that serve mainly people from the most deprived communities were dismissed. Citizens Initiative set up a  crowd fund to  provide access to basic medical care through mobile clinics. The crowd fund raised USD$22,824. A total number of 4033 citizens were helped across Zimbabwe – Masvingo, Chipinge, Binga, Mutare  and other hot spots in Harare’s Highfield and Bulawayo’s Cowdray. This initiative also unearthed the extent of  health intervention deprivation in Zimbabwe as a whole.
