WORLD TOILET DAY: 19 NOVEMBER 2013

 Today is the first ever United Nations-designated World Toilet Day. Worldwide, some 2.5 billion people – or half the population in the developing world – lack the benefits of adequate sanitation. According to the UN, access to sanitation is a recognized human right, a basic service required to live a normal life, and hygienic sanitation facilities are central to human and environmental health. In his message for the Day, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for placing sanitation at the heart of the international community’s post-2015 development activities. Access to hygienic sanitation is a challenge faced in Afghanistan – for example, its capital city, Kabul, has only 25 public toilets for more than three million people. The city’s mayor, Mohammad Yunus Nawandish, has called on the private sector to help address the problem through the construction of more public toilets.
