The goal of the partner event „Improving health care waste and pharmaceuticals waste management in Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries”, organised in the framework of the EU Green Week 2021, is to bring into discussion the report „Presence of pharmaceuticals in surface waters in the EaP countries: Results from EU-funded projects”, by Jaroslav Slobodnik from Environment Institute Slovakia. The speakers of the partner event are also representatives of the line Ministries in the field of environment of the EaP countries who will present the information about the situation with medical waste and pharmaceutical waste in the EaP countries. Civil society will present an alternative opinion about the situation with medical waste in the certain EaP countries and the speakers will be asked to make conclusions on the next steps to be taken to improve the situation in this field.
