We were contracted through the Management Sciences for Health’s Strengthening Pharmaceutical Systems Program to undertake an assessment of the management and disposal of pharmaceutical waste in Namibia’s private sector.

Six municipalities were selected for the assessment, namely Windhoek, Walvis Bay, Otjiwarongo, Outjo, Oshakati, and Mariental.

The draft practical harmonised manual focused on waste minimisation, inventory of pharmaceutical waste, segregation and containerisation, as well as storage and transportation.
