Yemen Association for Consumer Protection (YACP)

The disposal of hazardous medical waste must be understood by the community to have a lasting impact. YACP seek to enhance environmental awareness of social responsibility towards protecting the environment by informing the community of how to dispose of medical waste in a safe, environmentally friendly manner. Initiatives within the project include creating brochures, giving awareness lectures to the College of Pharmacy students, and holding panel discussions with local authorities concerned with the disposal of medical waste. A field meetings programme will also be created, in which random samples of drugstore and pharmacy workers will be targeted at random to know the extent of community commitment to appropriate methods of medical wate disposal.
