GOVERNMENT OF NEPAL
The Government of Nepal and especially its Ministry of Health and Population have long supported HECAF and now HECAF 360 in its Health Care Waste Management Program.
The Ministry's willingness to confront the potential public health disaster presented by careless and irresponsible disposal of health care wastes was instrumental in the implementation and dissemination of HECAF's pioneering waste management work.
