Business platform for universal access to sustainable sanitation

Building a global sanitation business ecosystem through partnership


We can't wait

The Toilet Board Coalition brings together experts from business, investment, and the global sanitation community through our platform to cross-fertilise experiences, innovate at all levels, and catalyse the growth of profitable sanitation businesses that deliver sanitation to all. 

We mean business

We work at a thought-leadership systems level to co-create the necessary ecosystem to support sanitation businesses to scale through the Business Opportunity Space programmes. And, through our Toilet Accelerator, we work directly with promising businesses in low-income markets that have the potential to deliver sustainable and resilient sanitation at scale.

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.
