world Toilet Day 11-20

World Toilet Day


No laughing matter this.




Today is World Toilet Day (WTD). The day is celebrated across the world to raise global awareness on the struggle 2.6 billion people face every day without access to proper, clean sanitation. WTD brings to the forefront the health, emotional and psychological consequences the poor endure as a result of inadequate sanitation.
Globally, India has the largest number of people - more than 600 million - still defecating in the open. Less than half the population of the country use toilets - in rural areas, almost 70 per cent do not have access to toilets. And diarrhoea, due to the lack of safe water, sanitation and basic hygiene, together with respiratory infections are the number one cause for child deaths in India.
Sanitation is vital for ensuring health, dignity and sustainable development. It can save hundreds of thousands of children who die every year.
