Pakistan - Punjab Human Capital Investment Project : Environmental Assessment : Environmental and Healthcare Waste Management Plan (Inglês)

The development objective of the Punjab Human Capital Investment Project for Pakistan is to increase the utilization of quality health services, and economic and social inclusion programs, among poor and vulnerable households in select districts in Punjab. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) the infection control protocols will be strictly implemented to minimize health risks for the staff and patients; (2) proper management of health care waste (HCW) can minimize the risks both within and outside healthcare facilities; (3) ensure measures to avoid and forestall any pilferage of medical waste particularly for recycling; (4) strictly following standard operating procedures to use sharps and proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) particularly prick-proof gloves and masks is of foremost importance to avoid safety hazards associated with sharps, gases, and others; (5) the sewage from the healthcare facilities within the cities will be discharged in city sewerage, otherwise on-site treatment such as septic tank and soaking pit will be upgraded according to international standards; and (6) open burning of the HCW particularly if it contains plastics and polyethylene will be avoided since it produces dioxins in addition to other toxic gases.
