A new guidance issued by UNDP GEF Global Healthcare Waste Project presents general procedures for maintaining and calibrating common types of non-mercury thermometers and sphygmomanometers to make sure that they function and can be used properly.

The guidance is intended for users of non-mercury devices in healthcare facilities, health ministries and institutions that set standards and requirements for medical devices and for group purchasing organizations.
