Survey and Pilot Audit of USAID’s Environmental Safeguards When Implementing HIV/AIDS Activities.
Country: United States
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: No
HIV/AIDS activities help procure testing kits, laboratory supplies, and medicines. In part, HIV/AIDS activities are carried out in hospitals, clinics, and drug distribution warehouses/storage areas. These activities have produced medical waste materials that, if disposed of improperly, can have a negative effect upon the environment and local population. These materials include but are not limited to expired drugs and contaminated testing kits and syringes.
Two different HIV/AIDS country audits by USAID/IG staff were conducted in FY 2009. The audits raised concerns of possible problems related to the disposal of medical waste materials generated by HIV/AIDS activities.
This audit will determine whether USAID’s HIVAIDS activities have been implemented in a manner that will minimize the detrimental impact of medical waste materials to the environment.
