Health Care Waste Management in the Kyrgyz Republic: An innovative low cost system.

In the Kyrgyz Republic, the Swiss Red Cross developed a new Health Care Waste Management (HCWM) system and introduced it in two thirds of all hospitals in the country. This publication gives the details of the success story. The project was implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The publication complements the previously presented SRC publications on the Kyrgyz Republic: The Health Issue Paper on Community Action for Health.
