Case study: medical waste management in Bhutan

The Infection Control and Medical Waste Management Programme of Bhutan – previously known as the Health-care Waste Management Programme – was implemented in 1994 and funded by the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) after the first HIV case was detected in the country. The Programme has evolved since then, with policies and acts guiding the current practice of medical waste management in Bhutan.
