Understanding Air Pollution and its impacts on Human Health: a tool-kit for physicians

Despite studies showing the severe implication of air pollution on human health, the public is still not engaging enough in air quality policy initiatives and the level of awareness and knowledge of the effects of poor air quality on health is often low. High impact issues like air pollution need to be communicated effectively. Doctors are the first responders to any health crisis, they are not only stewards in their profession but also possess high social regard, any word of information flowing through them is regarded with high value and could have a positive impact. Informed and aware doctors can effectively communicate to patients and visitors about the ill effects of air pollution and the ways to combat air pollution. This document acts as a guide and a strategic approach on how to create awareness among patients on air pollution and its adverse health outcomes.

Pictorial guide on Biomedical Waste Management Rules 2016 (Amended in 2018 & 2019)

To strengthen the compliance and implementation of revised rules, Centre for Chronic Disease Control (CCDC) along with Centre for Environmental Health (CEH)−Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) and Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) has developed the Pictorial Guide on Biomedical Waste Management Rules 2016. It is a compilation of important strategies that are key to appropriate management of bio-medical waste in India. These include presentation of the important elements of bio-medical waste management in an illustrative format thus aiming to overcome the barriers in understanding the comprehensive rules and facilitating implementation by healthcare workers on the ground.

This guide has been endorsed by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change.
