Total of medical waste generation from health care activities increased every year. Medical waste must be treated seriously because the hazardous substances have potentially to transmit disease and pollute the environment. According to data in 2018, the ministry of environment and forestry estimates that there are around 8,000 tons of untreated medical waste in Indonesia. This is because the current capacity of medical waste management in Indonesia is smaller compared to the growth of medical waste. Several research results indicate that the conditions for the management of medical waste in community health centers still encounter various obstacles. This paper aims to conduct a literature review on matters relating to the medical waste management in community health center and influencing variables. The results of the study are in the form of a framework for conducting a more comprehensive study in order to overcome the problem of managing medical waste at community health centers.
Key words: medical waste management / community health center / infectious waste / waste generation
