Health Workers Dying

MEK: Remembering Iran’s Angels on World Internationl Health Day

Health Workers Dying

It is common for nurses and other health workers to work 12-hour shifts. There have even been reports from (PMOI / MEK Iran) network sources in Iran, of some nurses working for 24 hours at a stretch.


The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), are commemorated World Health Day 2021 under the theme “building a fairer, healthier world for everyone.”  The World Health Organization has called for urgent action to eliminate health inequities and mobilize action to attain better health for all and leave no one behind.

The situation in Iran, however, is far from these international goals. According to reports by (NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran), on Thursday, April 8, 2021, that the Coronavirus death toll in 535 cities had exceeded 246,400.

Remembering Iran’s Angels

In Iran, 80% of nurses are women. They are suffering more during the coronavirus crisis than in any period before, and a significant number have died in the service of public health.

The chairman of the Supreme Council of the Medical System said: “The lack of basic safety and protection facilities for doctors, nurses, and medical staff, has led to the loss of the best medical and specialized staff,”. (The state-run Mostaghel newspaper, April 4, 2020)

With the decision to lift quarantine and start economic and administrative activities in Iran, and the ever-growing number of patients, the pressure has increased even more on nurses who work a number of shifts and sleep on the floor of hospitals most nights. Nurses have not seen their children for months.

Shortage of nurses and medical workers

The shortage of nurses and medical workers was a serious issue in Iran even before the outbreak of COVID-19. But after the epidemic, the situation has become much worse. Female nurses are the main victims of this tragedy in a medical system that has been ruined by the mullahs’ regime.

Nurses employed under 89-day temporary contracts

After the coronavirus has become a national catastrophe in Iran, the mullah regime exploits nurses more than ever, instead of even paying their salaries or offering special benefits to those who are at the forefront of the struggle. At least 35% of the workforce under the supervision of medical universities is employed under 89-day temporary contracts.
