- Lack of sanitation and open defecation contributes to the incidence of diarrhoea and to the spread of intestinal parasites, which in turn cause malnutrition.
- Unicef: “We need to bring concrete and innovative solutions to the problem of where people go to the toilet, otherwise we are failing millions of our poorest and most vulnerable children.”
