Between 2009 and 2012, FIRE worked with the Albuquerque Del Norte Rotary Club in New Mexico, USA, and the Selbe Rotary Club in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, to distribute 152,077 sharps containers (biohazard boxes for sharp medical waste) to 266 rural hospitals and clinics in Mongolia. We reached 10 out of 21 provinces and trained 1,730 health care workers. We delivered a two-year supply of sharps containers for every hospital in each province. These containers were distributed in conjunction with a one-day training session for representatives from every hospital, on use of the containers and proper medical waste management. We distributed educational posters and handouts as well as a one-hour training DVD which FIRE wrote, directed and produced.
