Some products distributed in a voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) campaign, or other health interventions (HI), may occasionally be damaged or held past their expiration date. As a result, they are no longer usable. Unusable medical products (including expired/damaged male circumcision (MC) kits, chemical/pharmaceutical products, and single-use instruments) may also result from periodic “de-junking,” or routine inventory clearance processes.
This guide describes recommended procedures for disposing of unusable medical products.
