Through this contribution, we try to provide specific insights, knowledge and new reflections on health impacts with the aim of mobilising public and private services in terms of information, awareness and mobilisation for better prevention of risks related to hospital waste within our health facilities. The interested in this work is three-fold: to better understand the impact of waste on public health and the environment, identify improvements and practical paths to the concerned to ensure now better prevention. Through this research work, we want to open up a national debate on the harmfulness of these wastes.
