Abstract: Health-care waste poses significant health hazards in all countries of the South-East Asian Region. Health-care waste management is a cross-sectoral issue and requires the support of various agencies such as health, municipalities, infrastructure, the private sector etc. WHO has been supporting Member States to develop policies, guidelines and laws on health-care waste management. The WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MoH), Government of Nepal, organized a regional workshop on Health-care Waste Management in Kathmandu, Nepal, from 7-9 December 2011, to review the status of the progress and also to share and learn from various country experiences. Sixty-three professionals from the health sector and municipalities from countries in the Region and from several UN agencies, international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) and local nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) participated in the workshop. This is a report of the proceedings of the workshop, and includes the discussions and recommendations.
