  • With safe water and sanitation we can use vaccines to prevent typhoid fever, which affects an estimated at least 11 million persons each year. #WorldToiletDay
  • Today is World Toilet Day! Worldwide more people have access to a mobile phone than a toilet. And 2.3 billion people do not have access to a clean and safe toilet.
  • Clean and safe toilets are more than just a place to use the restroom.  They are essential for health, human dignity, and improved education. Sadly, 2.3 billion people are still using inadequate forms of sanitation, which in many ways represents a hidden public health crisis. #WorldToiletDay
