This is why the United Nations General Assembly in 2013 designated 19 November as World Toilet Day and UN Water is calling on people to help raise awareness of the issue with the hashtag #wecantwait. Without good sanitation, people are at risk of disease and malnutrition. Women and girls suffer disproportionate impacts due to the lack of toilets at schools, the home or the workplace.
We can’t wait to change this situation. We must speak up and end the global sanitation crisis. It is time to end this deadly crisis and to ensure everyone, everywhere has access to a clean, safe toilet.
