Tanzania | New Study Analyzes Handling and Disposal of Mercury Containing Equipment in Educational and Health Facilities

HCWH partner organization, AGENDA, based in Tanzania, carried out a baseline survey on mercury use in healthcare facilities and schools.

The project counted with the participation of 56 schools and 43 healthcare facilities covering the whole country and measured the level of awareness of the effects of mercury to the environment and human health.
