HOSPITAL EQUIPMENT TO FIGHT INFECTIONS
Total has joined forces with Globale Industrie Mécanique (GIM) to improve biomedical waste management in Mali’s hospitals. With the existing systems causing new hepatitis B and C infections every year, the need for action was urgent. In 2012, Total delivered five high-performance biomedical waste incinerators to the country’s major hospitals. These innovative machines were manufactured by GIM using recovered metal and local clay.
