Abstract: Background: In recent years, bio-medical waste treatment has mainly emerged as an important concern from an environment point of view. But the bio-medical waste generated from hospitals depends on various factors like availability of infrastructure and resources, types of health care units and reusable items used in hospitals etc. However, the impact of bio-medical waste on the environment, human beings, and flora fauna has raised concerns worldwide.4In India 1.5kg/bed/day of waste are generated. Till now the hospital waste is not being ?managed ?it was simply disposed. WHO says that more than 50.0000 people die every day from infectious diseases. One of the causes for the increase in infectious disease is improper waste management. Blood, body fluids and body secretions which are constituents of biomedical waste harbours most of the viruses, bacteria and parasites that causes infections. HIV and hepatitis viruses spread head an extensive list of infection and disease documented to have spread through biomedical waste. Objectives of the study are to assess the knowledge of health team members regarding biomedical waste management by using a structured knowledge questionnaire among health team members in SCPM hospital at Gonda, UP. Methods and materials: An experimental study was conducted to assess the effectiveness ofplanned teaching programme (PTP) on knowledge regarding biomedical waste management among health team members. the research design was pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test design and non-probability purposive sampling method was used for the selection of samples. The instrument for the data collection was Knowledge questionnaire on Biomedical waste management among Health team members who are working in SCPM Hospital at Gonda. Results: The comparison of Knowledge on biomedical waste management before & after P.T.P shows that on an average health team members improved their knowledge from 19.1 to 25.4 after PTP. The difference between pre- and post- test Knowledge score is t=13.388 P=0.05 and it was significant. Overall 21 percent of Knowledge gain is the net benefit of this study, which indicates the effectiveness of P.T.P. There was no significant association between the findings of Knowledge with demographic variables estimated by chi-square (?2) test. Conclusion: The major findings indicated that health team members had inadequate Knowledge so planned teaching programme was found to be a very effective method of providing information.
