GLRPPR Sector Resource: Safe management of wastes from health-care activities, 2nd edition

Title:
Safe management of wastes from health-care activities, 2nd edition

Abstract:
This is the second edition of the World Health Organization (WHO) handbook on the safe, sustainable and affordable management of health-care waste -- commonly known as "the Blue Book". The original Blue Book was a comprehensive publication used widely in health-care centres and government agencies to assist in the adoption of national guidance. It also provided support to committed medical directors and managers to make improvements and presented practical information on waste-management techniques for medical staff and waste workers. The new Blue Book is designed to continue to be a source of impartial health-care information and guidance on safe waste-management practices. The editors' intention has been to keep the best of the original publication and supplement it with the latest relevant information.
