New Training Video on Mercury Waste in Hospitals

Global — HCWH has released a video meant to be part of training program for hospitals around the world aiming to eliminate mercury and safely manage and store mercury waste while governments search for a more permanent solution.

It supports the WHO-HCWH Global Mercury Free Initiative goal of developing replicable models of sound mercury waste management in the health sector. It is available in Spanish and English and is adaptable to other languages. It is targeted for health care workers, and will be disseminated and used in developing countries.
