Since the COVID pandemic, major hospitals across Nepal have set up environmentally friendly systems to segregate, treat and dispose of healthcare waste. Together with WHO Nepal and UNICEF, the project supported the National Health Training Centre (NHTC), the in-service training institution of the Ministry of Health and Population, to develop a learning resource package on healthcare waste management. This has resulted in cleaner premises, safer working conditions, reduced burning of waste and welcome revenue from the sale of recyclables. Find out more here!
