The medical waste framework law, regional policies, related local authorities, and other stakeholders were evaluated to provide a gap analysis and improvement recommendations using international standards as a benchmark but focusing on the content. A strategy paper was developed recommending amendments and corrections to the current national medical waste management plan.
Information was gathered for the medical waste management plan based on Q&A rounds and audit surveys of health units. Brief recommendation reports were then developed for each unit, including status quo and optimization measures.
330 technicians were trained in medical waste management systems, medical waste treatment & disposal technologies to increase capacity and improve the overall situation.
