‘Swachh Bharat’ good example of how countries can make safe sanitation services accessible: WHO

India’s ‘Swachh Bharat’ campaign is a good example of how countries can make safe sanitation services accessible to all, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on November 18. Under the ‘Swachh Bharat’ programme, household sanitation coverage increased at a rate of 13 per cent annually between 2016 and 2018, WHO said.

Everyone should have access to safe sanitation facilities including hygienic toilets that are connected to quality sewage systems, WHO said, adding that for many people in its South-East Asia region, as across the world, access to these services remains a problem.

WHO Regional Director for South-East Asia Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh said 900 million people region-wide lack basic sanitation and more than 500 million practise open defecation.
