Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Communications and Information Technology have launched a website for healthcare waste management, within the Medical and Electronic Waste Management project, carried out in collaboration between the Ministry of Environment and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
The aim is to follow up on the amount of waste produced from each health facility and when it is transferred to waste treatment plants, as well as the amount treated, to ensure reaching all piles of waste. This is in addition to sending waste to proper treatment locations and making sure to safely dispose of the treatment outputs.
The website acts as the nucleus of the process of regulating and ensuring a safe disposal of medical waste, which is one of the most important hazardous wastes that greatly affect the health of citizens. The website also ensures sustainability of the medical waste system.
