The number of HIV voluntary counseling and testing centers has also soared, and long-term care of people living with HIV/AIDS has moved largely from hospitals to communities and households. These trends indicate a commensurate increase in the waste generated by family planning and HIV/AIDS services and some shifts in responsibility for safe disposal of such waste. Unsafe disposal of medical wastes, including used condoms, hypodermic syringes, needles, hormonal preparations, and expired medicines, can be hazardous to human health and the environment.
