There were 7 training courses for doctors, nurses, midwives, laboratory workers, security personnel and cleaner for a total of approximatly 80 people.
Objective of the trainings was to increase the awarness on the correct hospitals waste management, in order to minimize the contact of uninfected materials with potential infectious sources and reduce the production of infectious waste, encourage the separation of medical waste and urban waste.
To this end, new waste bins - specially colored so as to be easily identifiable - were purchased. In October a second training will be organized by the Ministry of Health - Red Sea - on the hospital protocol for the management of hospital waste and transport to the area incinerator
