Rejuvenation of Community Toilets

Sanitation services are necessary to support urban stability, enable social balance, economic growth and development and are imperative for the improvement of urban public services. In the absence of proper sanitation, people suffer from high levels of infectious, contagious, water borne, air borne and vector borne diseases leading to high incidences of morbidity and mortality.

This directly affects the ability of a country to maintain an efficient economy and implies great personal suffering among infected individuals and their families. Thus, improving environmental health is the most cost effective means of enhancing people’s health and welfare.
