This toolkit provides guidance on health care waste management (HCWM) and environmental hygiene best practices for VMMC services. Each component of the toolkit is based on VMMC program experience, WHO guidance, and USAID environmental protection/compliance regulations.
The toolkit contains two components: program guidance and site guidance.
This toolkit was developed by the Supply Chain Management System (SCMS) — a project funded by the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and administered by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) — under the terms of contract number GPO-I-00-05-00032-00.
The resources in the toolkit’s program guidance component provide VMMC implementing partners with guiding principles for the design, implementation, and monitoring of VMMC environmental health programs.
In the site guidance component of the toolkit, the resources provide health service providers with specific guidance and tools to teach and reinforce environmental health management.
