Burundi - Additional Financing for the Public Health Laboratory Networking Project : medical waste management plan : Gestion des dechets medicaux (Francês)

The overall goal of the additional financing of the Public Health Laboratory Networking Project of Burundi is to ensure proper medical waste management in order to prevent environmental contamination and the spread of disease among health staff and the community living in the neighborhood in general and health facilities and laboratories in particular. Specifically, the project will a) improve the handling of medical waste throughout the supply chain management from source to final disposal of waste with particular emphasis on the construction of incinerators suitable; b) improve training of medical waste management healthcare workers and health facilities; and 3) monitoring and evaluation of the medical waste management in health facilities. Much of medical waste is eliminated in Burundi in nature and is likely to cause environmental contamination and disease in the population. These different forms of environmental contamination may directly or indirectly cause illness. Medical waste can cause injury and facilitate the spread of diseases such as hepatitis B and C, HIV / AIDS, tetanus, gastro-enteric, respiratory, eye and skin, meningitis, etc. In addition, medical waste in the environment exerts impacts on the biological environment such as flora and fauna on the one hand, and the physical environment of water, air and soil on the other.
