Medical care is vital for our life, health and well being. But the waste generated from medical activities can be hazardous, toxic and even lethal because of their high potential for diseases transmission. The hazardous and toxic part of the waste from health care establishments comprising infectious, bio-medical and radio-active material as well as sharps (hypodermic needles, knives, scalpels etc.) constitute a grave risk, if these are not properly treated/disposed or allowed to get mixed with other municipal waste. Its properties to encourage growth of various pathogens and vectors and its ability to contaminate other non-hazardous/non-toxic municipal waste jeopardizes the efforts undertaken for overall municipal waste management. The rag pickers and waste workers are often worst affected , because unknowingly or unwittingly, they rummage through all kinds of poisonous material while trying to salvage items which they can sell or reuse. At the same time, this kind of illegal and unethical reuse can be extremely dangerous and even fatal. Diseases like cholera, plague, tuberculosis, hepatitis, AIDS (HIV), diphtheria etc in either epidemic or even endemic form, pose grave public health risks. Unfortunately, in the absence of reliable and extensive data, it is difficult to quantify the dimension of the problem or even the extent and variety of the risk involved. However, the risk can be considerably reduced or minimized by the use of disposable medical items. This is an unique book of its kind. This will help to minimize spreading of diseases with the help of medical staffs, NGOs, volunteers and other non-medical man powers. Manufacturing know-how of most disposable medical items are described in a very simple manner. This is a very useful book for young scientists, medical students, industrialists to explore further.
