Today, on 19 November, it is World Toilet Day! Today is about taking action for 2.4 billion people living without this basic need. Since the adoption of this day by the United Nations General Assembly in 2013, it has been used to sensitize on the importance and necessity of this basic need. Supported by the Sanitation for All Resolution many governments and international NGO’s have been working together. This resolution is also part of the Sustainable Development Goals 2015.2016 World Toilet Day theme‘Toilet and jobs’ is this year’s theme and it focuses on how sanitation, or the lack of it, can impact the lives of people. Toilets are crucial in creating a strong economy, improving health and protecting people’s safety and dignity. Especially for women and girls’. Lacking a toilet has numerous impacts on businesses as it causes problems in the workforce such as poor health, absenteeism, attrition, reduced concentration, exhaustion and decreased productivity. Investing in proper toilets in workplaces and schools so that women and girls have clean, separate facilities to maintain their dignity can boost what is often referred to as the ‘girl effect’: maximizing the involvement of half the population in a community.
