The high generation rate of medical waste is a proof that medical waste management is problematic. Base on a case study undertaken at different health institutes. This research looks in to the various issues in the field of medical waste mana gement. The research explores the staff’s perception towards the medical waste management. The study aims to examine the knowledge level and attitude and role of health care workers towards the medical waste management. Here we study quality index and envi ronmental index of two health care centres one is private hospital and another one is government hospital and compare these two indexes in respect to each other by questionnaire survey. To produce a more environmental friendly services, the customers, and environmental criteria must be taken into account during the decision making process, and the Green Quality Function Deployment (G - QFD) provides a very useful methodology to fulfill this objective.
