    2019 Waste Management Training Session 3: Tool for Waste Management Considerations for VL and EID Testing Laboratories and Associated Healthcare Facilities

    In collaboration with ASLM and the LabCoP community, the CDC International Laboratory Branch (ILB) presented the 3rd of 6 ECHO sessions dedicated to waste management. In this session, a draft of a viral load waste management checklist tool that can be used as baseline audit of select country VL labs was introduced. The tool aims to assist in creating awareness of best practices and identifying gaps for waste management processes in HIV molecular testing laboratories and associated healthcare facilities.

    VL Scale-Up Strategic Decision Making

    LabCoP members who attended the Kampala face-to-face meeting in October 2018 developed a Decision-Making Matrix that outlines strategic areas, strategic options, and priority action items for improvement in four focus areas within the viral load cascade, including demand creation, results utilization, waste management and biosafety, and network optimization. This matrix could be used as a tool to aid in the development of intervention plans (work plans/implementations plans) for these thematic areas.

    Safe Management of Wastes from Health Care Activities: A Summary

    This document, developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017, highlights the key aspects of safe healthcare waste management in order to guide policymakers, practitioners and facility managers to improve such services in healthcare facilities. It is based on the comprehensive WHO handbook ‘Safe Management of Wastes from Health-Care Activities’ (WHO, 2014), and also takes into consideration relevant World Health Assembly resolutions, other United Nations documents, and emerging global and national developments on water, sanitation, hygiene, and infection prevention and control.
