Pakistan: Student Nurses Allege Sexual Harassment

On 23/Oct/2017 / In Medical News

Trainee nurses of Ghulam Muhammad Mahar Medical College Teaching Hospital accused fellow male colleagues of sexual harassment.
 
In a letter written by a group of trainee nurses to health officials, they alleged they were under pressure as accountants of the hospital were demanding sexual favours in return for their salaries and stipend.
 
They said their salaries had been held by said officers for more than six month because the nurses refused their sexual advances.
 
They also claimed most of the trainee nurses had left their training as a result of the sexual harassment by the officials.
 
They alleged that the hospital’s administration had not acted on their complaints.
 
A number of the trainee nurses had attempted to die by suicide due to the coercion and stress, the letter stated.
 
The nurses appealed Sindh government and Chief Justice of Pakistan to investigate and resolve the issue.
