A TECHNICAL REPORT | Doctors call for elimination of harmful plastics in healthcare to protect public & planetary health

Advancement of global healthcare takes not just modern technologies and top-of-the-line medications, but also requires the realization of a truly sustainable and safe healthcare management system that understands the link between the sector’s landmark operations and the possible impacts it can create on the environment, wildlife and people’s health.

This Audit Report made possible by the hospitals from Indonesia and the Philippines will historically demonstrate the bulk of plastics in the hospital waste stream and importantly, put emphasis on the role of the healthcare sector in positioning itself as a critical stakeholder for reduction and elimination of plastic pollution.
