Course on Waste Management and Health Care @ NIT Patna [Dec 3-8]: Registrations open

About the Course

Developing countries are facing a serious issue of rapid increase in waste generation rate and these countries are unable to support the basic services required to manage the large volume of waste on daily basis. As a result, the collected wastes are dumped in open land filling sites while the uncollected wastes remain strewn on the roadside, many-a-time clogging drainage. Improper handling, storage, and disposal of wastes are major causes of environmental pollution, which provides breeding grounds for pathogenic organisms and encourages the spread of infectious diseases thus adversely affecting health of the people.

This course will holistically analyze the different health implications that result due to improper waste management and how it affects various population sub-groups. It will also delineate the sustainable waste management techniques and appropriate health care
remediation practices that can be adopted in developing countries to improve the situation.
