Sustainable Health Care Waste Management

  • Scale-up project
Effective medical waste management during and after the Covid-19 outbreak is an issue in developing countries, and the UNDP is helping authorities across the world to overcome this challenge. In Sri Lanka, the initiative promotes new digital and gender-responsive solutions to local healthcare waste (HCW) management. Work focuses on bridging the last-mile safe disposal of clinical waste within the overall waste management framework of affected communities. This is achieved by establishing new management information systems and piloting concrete solutions protecting and empowering women, including a new “Waste to Energy” system generating electricity.
