An Assessment of Injection Safety and Health Care Waste Management in Nigeria at Selected Health Facilities in Abuja Municipal Area Council, Federal Capital Territory, and Makurdi Local Government Area, Benue State.


Findings illustrate compliance of most intervention facilities with HCWM standards. Nonetheless, achievements in knowledge of transmission of infection by injection and health worker tetanus and hepatitis B vaccination are balanced by areas that could be improved, such as in injection preparation and commodity availability. In several instances, observations revealed discrepancies between on-the-ground practices and officer-in-charge or health worker reports of those practices that may be due to social desirability bias. Some achievements prevail across all facility levels; others affect just one level, with other levels lagging. JSI/AIDSTAR-One. 2014.
