Improved Sanitation


Did you know that more people have access to a cell phone than a toilet?

According to the World Health Organization, 2.3 billion people still lack access to basic sanitation. Inadequate sanitation is estimated to cause an alarming 280,000 diarrheal deaths annually and is a major factor in several neglected tropical diseases, including intestinal worms, schistosomiasis, and trachoma. Poor sanitation also contributes to malnutrition, according to UNICEF
