One month ago, the LANCET (ScienceDirectRef: “Expanding safe waste management to public health systems” https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(18)32622-9), January 2019, Elsevier Ltd.) published a letter to the editor (see also attached). The letter points to the failure to sustain or expand immunization waste management infra-structure to all public health programmes. To stimulate an exchange of views the letter includes a text-box proposing four key milestones towards a single vision.
I would like to open the discussion also on Technet. The four milestones are quite general at first glance but they are based on specific experiences of the PATH/WHO Children’s Vaccine Programme that I will introduce as we discuss your own experience and areas of interest.
