On 19 November each year World Toilet Day highlights the importance of toilets and each individual's right to a safe and hygienic sanitary environment.

Lack of safe sanitation has been called a ‘silent crisis’. The international community recognizes World Toilet Day every 19 November to advocate for those who need better sanitation.

Approximately 2.5 billion people lack access to improved sanitation. World Toilet Day  highlights this ‘silent crisis’. Founded in 2001 by the World Toilet Organisation (WTO), the event celebrates the importance of sanitation by supporting and accelerating efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goal target to reduce by half the proportion of people without access to basic sanitation by 2015.

This year, WSSCC and WTO proudly present a brand new World Toilet Day campaign. Please take a look and see how you can get involved with the day of not just advocacy but also of real action.
