This MOA signing came after the Sustainable Healthcare Waste Management Orientation given by the GGHH Team and Engr. Jose Barsaga of the Philippine Heart Center.
Ultimately, the activity and the MOA signing aims to strengthen the ties between HCWH, GGHH and the Calcutta Medical Center in implementing hospital waste management that is not harmful to the planet and to the patients.
