But the real question is: What would you do if you didn’t have a toilet…

The reality is that billions around the world don’t have access.

Flush toilets are unavailable to a majority of the developing world and over 3 billion people worldwide do not have access to any form of toilet or latrine system. Therefore, these people must result to urinating or defecating in public. Numerous health issues come from the lack of suitable toilets along with safety concerns especially involving women using a public form of bathroom.

Did you know lack of toilets and sanitation kills approximately 2 million people a year most of whom are children?

In order to bring safe, clean toilets to the developing nations the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation along with UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education, African Development Bank African Water Facility, Water Services Trust Fund and German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) and WASH for Life are teaming together for a water and sanitation challenge to reinvent the toilet.

Over 8 different universities worldwide are currently underway to create technology that will reinvent the toilet as “a stand-alone unit without piped-in water, a sewer connection, or outside electricity—all for less than 5 cents a day” according to PRNewswire.

    Indoor plumbing is something that all of us take for granted. Yet it would be a luxury to people all over the world. It makes you stop and wonder how different life would be without a toilet!

    Totally agree with your article. Doctors get all the credit for a healthy society when it is really “Dr Plumber” doing the work!
