The United Nations is leading a call to action on sanitation
8 Apr 2014 -  The United Nations is calling to Action on Sanitation: 2.5 billion people worldwide lack access to basic sanitation. Recognizing that greater progress on sanitation is essential for fighting poverty and disease, the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson has initiated, on behalf of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, a renewed effort to drive progress on sanitation and water goals towards the 2015 target date of the Millennium Development goals and beyond.

To break the silence on open defection and improve sanitation for all, join the UN's call to action on sanitation.
