The scale of the challenge. 2.6 billion people – four in ten people in the world – do not have access to a toilet. Every day, diarrhoeal disease kills 5,000 children. Every week, it kills 42,000 people. Every one of these deaths is tragic – and preventable.

the scale of the challenge
The scale of the challenge
  • 2.6 billion people – four in ten people in the world – do not have access to a toilet.
  • Every day, diarrhoeal disease kills 5,000 children. Every week, it kills 42,000 people. Every one of these deaths is tragic – and preventable.
  • Without concerted action, the lack of sanitation will continue to impact the lives of billions of people and impede progress on development.

  • Sub-Saharan Africa recorded the least progress – only 5 percent: from 26 (1990) to 31 percent (2006).

  • The majority of people without sanitation live in Asia (70 percent) and Sub-Saharan Africa (22 percent).
  • The world is not on track to meet the MDG sanitation target. At the current rate, we will miss the target by over 700 million people. (see next slide).

progress towards the mdg sanitation target 2006

Coverage in 2006 was less than 5% below the rate it needed to be for the country to reach the MDG target, or coverage was higher than 95%.

Coverage in 2006 was 5 to 10% below the rate

it needed to be for the country to reach the MDG target.

Coverage in 2006 was more than 10% below the rate it needed to be for the country to reach the MDG target, or the 1990–2006 trend shows unchanged or decreasing coverage.

Data were unavailable or insufficient to estimate trends.

Progress towards the MDG sanitation target 2006

On track

Progress but insufficient

Not on track

the international year of sanitation in five key massages
The International Year of Sanitation in five key massages
  • Sanitation is vital for human health
  • Sanitation generates economic benefits
  • Sanitation contributes to dignity and social development
  • Sanitation protects the environment
  • Improving sanitation is achievable
sanitation is vital for human health 1
Sanitation is vital for human health (1)

Lack of sanitation is one of the biggest causes of illness and death in the developing world:

  • One gram of faeces can contain 10 million viruses, one million bacteria, one thousand parasite cysts and 100 worm eggs.
  • More than half the hospital beds in Sub-Saharan Africa are currently occupied by patients with preventable diarrhoeal disease; improving sanitation and hygiene would free up money and resources to tackle other health issues.

Sanitation is vital for human health (2)

Lack of sanitation is one of the biggest causes of illness and death in the developing world:

  • Access to a toilet can reduce child diarrhoeal deaths by over 30 percent.
  • Diarrhoea coupled with pneumonia kills more children than any other disease.
  • Children infested by worms lose up to one-third of the nutrient value of their food.
sanitation generates economic benefits 1
Sanitation generates economic benefits (1)
  • Meeting the Millennium Development Goal for sanitation would cost about $10 billion every year, but yield benefits upwards of nearly $200 billion per year.
  • Sanitation is among public health’s most cost-effective policy interventions.
  • Around 12 percent of the health budget in countries of Sub-Saharan African is currently spent treating preventable diarrhoeal diseases.

Sanitation generates economic benefits (2)
  • Investing in sanitation makes investments in education more effective; girls are more likely to go to school and stay in school when girls-friendly toilets are available.
  • Investments in sanitation also protect water resources, make investments in water supply more effective, and increase tourism revenues.
sanitation contributes to dignity and social development 1
Sanitation contributes to dignity and social development (1)
  • Many of the 2.6 billion people without basic sanitation defecate in the open, exposing themselves to ridicule, shame, and, for women and girls, the risk of attack.
  • Within thirty years, UN-Habitat estimatesthan one in three people in the world will live in a slum. Without adequate sanitation,they will live surrounded by human filth.

  • Girls are nearly twice as likely as boys to fail to complete primary education. Improving sanitation with girls-friendly toilets at schools can help them catch up.
sanitation protects the environment
Sanitation protects the environment

Investments in sanitation protect vital natural

resources, keep rivers and coastal seas clean,

and reduce degradation of productive land and

fisheries:

  • Worldwide, every year more than 200 million tonnes of human waste and vast quantities of solid waste and wastewater remain untreated.
  • In Southeast Asia 13 million tons of faeces are released to inland water sources each year, along with 122 million m3 of urine and 11 billion m3 of gray water.
improving sanitation is achievable 1
Improving sanitation is achievable (1)
  • Malaysia and Thailand achieved almost universal coverage through concerted programmes delivered over thirty years – well ahead of the Southeast Asian economic boom.
  • The Southern region of Ethiopia has seen a quiet revolution led by health extensionistswho have supported behaviour change andmoved to eliminate open defecation.
improving sanitation is achievable 2
Improving sanitation is achievable (2)
  • Almost 10,000 villages in Bangladesh and countless others in more than 15 countries have become “open-defecation-free” through Total Sanitation approaches led by the community.
we ve got what it takes a global consensus
We’ve got what it takes – a global consensus

There is a surprisingly high level of consensus

about what is needed:

  • approaches that respect and respond to people’s actual needs, preferences and demands;
  • suppliers of sanitation and hygiene services to meet those demands;
  • hard work and sustained funding over the long run;
  • plain talk about sanitation;
  • an inspiring vision of the future.
