Management of waste from injection activities at district level

Due to financial and institutional constraints, limited efforts have been made to provide District Management Teams with simple and adequate guidelines to set-up health-care waste management plans for primary and secondary health-care facilities. In particular, management of waste from mass and routine injection activities remains problematic as significant quantities of disposable or auto-disable syringes and needles are generated, for which there must be safe disposal options. This guide is designed as a simple and practical tool to help District Health Managers elaborate a realistic District level plan to reduce improper disposal of waste from injection activities.
