National Consultant for Procurement of Health Care Waste Treatment Equipment/Facility
Project Title: Learning from China's Experience to Improve the Ability of Response to COVID-19 in Asia and the Pacific Region
With the continuing spread of COVID-19 globally, the impact on human health and the economy intensifies. Confirmed COVID-19 cases, as well as probable and suspected cases, continue to increase in most of the regions in the Philippines, with a high concentration in Metro Manila. Proper management of the significant medical, household and other hazardous waste being generated is an urgent and essential intervention as it could pose additional risks to health and the environment. The ADB has estimated that in Metro Manila, around 280 tons per day of additional medical wastes will be generated, or 16,800 tons for 60 days. There are currently more than 11,000 metric tons of health care waste issued with a special permit to transport by the DENR since the March lockdown.
Health care facilities follow stringent guidelines in waste management issued by the Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). However, with the increasing volume of medical and hazardous wastes, including infected face masks, gloves, gowns, coveralls, and other protective equipment, the capacities of hospitals, especially those catering to COVID-19 patients and probable and suspected cases, may soon be not enough. Treatment, storage, and disposal facilities and personnel in the country are also limited, mostly located in the National Capital Region. There have been reports that hospital wastes are also being refused by waste management actors due to fear that they might also get infected.
In this context, this regional COVID response project, funded by China’s South-South Cooperation Assistance Fund (SSCAF), will build on and add value to China’s and UNDP CO’s ongoing efforts to support the Philippines to reduce the risks and impacts of COVID-19 and aims to effectively improve the response to COVID-19 in the areas of medical waste management and preparedness in the Philippines. This assignment will contribute to improving the medical waste management capacity technically and operationally to prevent the further containment of COVID-19 and to respond to the increasing medical waste and enhancing the technical capacities of health care workers and service providers to treat medical waste.
