19 November is World Toilet Day!

"Sustainable sanitation is resilient to climate change and safely processes bodily waste. Toilets, combined with clean water and good hygiene, form a strong defence against #COVID19 and future disease outbreaks" - World Toilet Day Website.

This year's World Toilet Day theme is 'Sustainable Sanitation and Climate Change'. According to the World Toilet Day website, '4.2 billion people live without access to safely managed sanitation', meaning that more than half the world's population do not have access to safe sanitation. This has huge impacts on disease and health management, and also has impacts on hygiene for people with limited or no access. Further reaching effects on Menstrual Health Management, and on the COVID-19 outbreak are also evident, as good hygiene and strong sanitation measures are required to ensure that people are able to maintain their health.
