World Toilet Day 2021: Valuing Toilets

World Toilet Day 2021: Valuing Toilets
World Toilet Day is a day of observance every November 19th, initiated by the United Nations, to spread awareness of the global sanitation crisis. According to the UN, 3.6 billion people – approximately 46% of the world population – do not have access to safely managed sanitation [1]. The Joint Monitoring Programme For Water Supply, Sanitation, and Hygiene (a joint initiative between the World Health Organization and The United Nations) defines “safely managed sanitation” as the “use of improved facilities that are not shared with other households and where excreta are safely disposed of in situ or removed and treated offsite.”

Everybody goes to the bathroom, but not everybody has access to clean, convenient, or even reliable sanitation facilities.
