Speaking after inaugurating a one-day conclave on ‘Go Green in Healthcare’, organised by Father Muller Medical College Hospital here. He said disposal of solid waste has become a major issue these days, and there is an urgent need to formulate specific plans.  Such conclaves would help devise proper methodology.

Appreciating some hospitals for having adopted ‘Go Green’ initiative, Minister Khader said he would examine whether such an initiative could be extended to government hospitals too. Starting with major hospitals in district levels, he added that the initiative needs to be extended to all hospitals.
