The Facts


Approximately 2.4 billion people live without improved sanitation, of which almost 1 billion people continue to defecate in the open.


Sanitation remains a neglected issue with financial investments representing only 1/5 of the total water, sanitation and hygiene sector expenditure.


Diarrhoeal diseases are the second leading cause of child deaths in the world. Every year 0.85 million children die from diarrhoea. 88% of these deaths are caused by poor sanitation and unimproved water.


1 in 3 women worldwide risk shame, disease, harassment and even attack because they have nowhere safe to go to the toilet.
