Il y a urgence: on doit œuvrer ensemble en faveur de l’assainissement

Intitulé Il y a urgence, le rapport a été présenté le 19 Novembre 2013 à l’occasion d’un événement organisé par les Nations Unies à New York pour marquer officiellement la première Journée mondiale des toilettes. Cette journée sert à rappeler au monde que plus de 2,5 milliards de personnes n’ont toujours pas accès à des toilettes appropriées, ce qui a des conséquences dévastatrices, notamment sur le bien-être, la santé, l’éducation et l’autonomisation des femmes et des filles dans le monde entier.

WSSCC Supports Indian Government Effort to Integrate Menstrual Hygiene in Key Sanitation Programme

On any given day, up to 350 million women and girls in India menstruate, yet across the country menstrual blood is considered impure. Girls and women are expected to hide all signs of menstruation, shrouding this natural, life-affirming phenomenon in secrecy, superstition and stigma. And few people talk about menstruation until menarche actually occurs. The result of this wall of silence is fear, shame, absence from school and work leading to a vicious cycle of poor hygiene practices based on inadequate information – all of which are exacerbated by poverty and inappropriate facilities for changing, washing, drying and disposal.
