WASH FACT FILE
Diarrhoea kills more young children than AIDS, malaria, and measels combined.
Two in five people do not have the security and dignity of a hygienic latrine or toilet.
By simply providing a separate latrine facility for girls, school enrollment rates for girls have been shown to improve by over 15 percent.
Among sanitation practices, the one that poses the greatest threat to human health is open defecation.
The practice of open defecation by 1.1billion people is an affront to human dignity.
