The Somaliland health care service delivery system provides health services through a four-tiered system. This is through fifteen hospitals (Six general hospitals and 9 specialty hospitals),9 referral health centers, 93 Health Centers and 163 Primary Health Units all providing at least some elements of a package of preventive and curative services called the Essential Package of Health Services, or EPHS, mainly for women and children. Medical waste management in Somaliland is still a big challenge. There is no policy framework in place to guide the effective management of medical waste. In addition, health personnel and health care facilities lack the technical skills and financial resources to manage medical waste. Poor medical waste management practices such as limited disaggregation of medical waste during disposal at the facilities, indiscriminate disposal in open spaces (mixed with other solid waste), and burning. Poor waste management can jeopardize health care staffs, patients, families and the neighboring population. In addition, inappropriate treatment or disposal of that waste can lead to environmental contamination.Purpose of the consultancy Develop a context appropriate medical waste management policy and guidelines for Somaliland covering all elements of health care waste including but not limited to; Sharps (waste entailing risk of injury) Waste entailing risk of contamination (waste containing blood, secretions or excreta entailing a risk of contamination) Anatomical waste (body parts, tissue entailing a risk of contamination) Infectious waste (waste containing large quantities of materials, substances or cultures entailing the risk of propagating infectious agents, waste from infectious patients placed in isolation wards.) Pharmaceutical waste (spilled or unused medicines, expired drugs and used medication receptacles) Cytotoxic waste (expired or left over cytotoxic drugs, equipment contaminated with cytotoxic substances) Waste containing heavy metals (batteries, mercury waste - broken thermometers, fluorescent pr compact fluorescent light tubes) Chemical waste (waste containing chemical substances: leftover laboratory solvents, disinfectants, photographic developers and fixers) Pressurized containers (gas cylinders and aerosol cans) Radioactive waste (waste containing radioactive substances: radionuclide used in laboratories or nuclear medicine, urine or excreta of patients treated).Key tasks of the consultancy Meet with Somaliland stakeholders (Ministry of health, health training institutions, Somaliland Health Professional Associations, NHPC, and at least 3 hospitals) to assess current medical waste management practices in Somaliland. Draft medical waste management policy and guidelines Share the draft medical waste management policy and guidelines with Somaliland stakeholders Produce a final copy of the policy and medical waste management guidelines Train at least 15 people from Ministry of Health, health-training institutions, the Health Professional Associations, NHPC and some selected hospitals on the use of the medical waste management guidelines
