Description: USAID Uganda Health Care Waste Management Activity Through this NOFO, USAID/Uganda is inviting Applicants to apply for the Health Care Waste Management Activity (HCWMA). The principal purpose of the HCWMA is to remediate the potential human health and environmental impacts of Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC), Maternal, Newborn and Child Care (MNCH) and Family Planning (FP)-related hazardous health care waste (HCW) through safe and proper segregation, collection, storage, transportation, treatment, and disposal. The HCWM Activity will be implemented at 378 health facilities that provide PEPFAR-funded VMMC services in 95 districts throughout Uganda. The Recipient will collect, weigh, package, label, transport, treat and dispose of at least the minimum quantity of hazardous HCW that the Recipient will propose in their application specified for each month, which shall exceed 400,000kgs over one year. The HCWM Activity will also implement an innovation program in 12 selected high volume health facilities to improve HCWM practices at facility level in accordance with Ministry of Health (MoH), National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) and World Health Organization (WHO) regulations and guidance. The innovation program will support the 12 selected health facilities listed under Section 4(4) of this Program Description for year 1, to become models of excellence for HCWM practices, which shall be emulated by the rest of the health facilities during the life of the project. In the 12 model health facilities, the Recipient will will propose specific activities in furtherance of this objective. The HCWM activities in the innovation health facilities will include proper HCW segregation (non-hazardous HCW from hazardous HCW, and segregation of hazardous HCW by category), use and maintenance of personal protection equipment (PPE) and training of staff in safe HCW handling. It will also prepare health facilities to purchase private sector transport, treatment, and disposal services for their total HCW burdens once the HCWM Activity is completed.
