WHY SOLVING THE SANITATION CRISIS IS CRITICAL?

Dignity

Inadequate sanitation adversely affects the dignity of millions of citizens who lack a safe place to defecate or urinate. Additionally, millions of sanitation workers face social ostracism

Health

Improper sanitation causes over 1,00,000 child deaths every year and several diseases such as diarrhoea and pneumonia. These diseases are a significant reason for nearly 40% of India’s children being stunted

Education

Poor sanitation acutely affects education outcomes. It is estimated that 23% of adolescent girls drop out from schools while lack of school toilets and handwashing with soap increases absenteeism

Productivity

Lack of sanitation costs India nearly USD 54 billion annually which is equivalent to 6.4% of its GDP. Additionally, 73 million working days can be recovered each year by improving the state of sanitation in India
