Happy World Toilet Day!

On 19th November was world toilet day.
What are you doing to improve access to improved sanitation around the world today?
In Malawi, current nationwide household sanitation facilities indicate a pit latrine with slab as the most common type of improved toilet/latrine facility in Malawi, (Table 2; Malawi Government, National Statistical Office and ICF Macro 2011). But, the data also exhibits only 8.8% of the population is using an improved, not shared toilet/latrine, facility, whereas 75.8% are using a pit latrine without a slab/open pit, a non-improved facility.  This shows there is still much work for all of us towards safe and sustainable sanitation.
