Lesotho - Maternal and Newborn Health Performance-Based Financing Project : environmental assessment (English)

The Lesotho Maternal and Newborn Health (MNH) Performance-Based Financing (PBF) Project seeks to improve the utilization and quality of maternal and newborn health services in selected districts in Lesotho. Negative impacts include: solid waste management, waste water disposal, health care waste generation at hospitals and health centre, determination of disposal sites, and community's response. As a result of these impacts the report outlined the mitigation measures that included: the development of a healthcare waste management plan that would stop the theft of plastic bucket type medical bins; maintain hospital grounds in a manner deserving of a health care institution; the introduction of a three-bin system with appropriate color coding for medical staff to separate all hospital waste accordingly; all infectious waste including sharps and used needles must be incinerated before disposal; employ a system of medical wastewater management that ensures that no chemicals and pathogens from health facilities are dumped into the sewage system; and finally develop and implement a training and awareness education plan for health facilities and relevant institution's personnel.
