In the United States, flushing toilets and clean water are not considered luxuries and are viewed as a necessity of life.This, unfortunately, is not the case for many other countries, which creates a deadly problem.The lack of proper sanitation in lesser-developed countries has led to a public health crisis, one that the toilet revolution hopes to end.What Is the Issue?
To meet basic sanitation requirements, a strong system must be in place to create a working sewage environment that reaches all areas, including rural areas, of a country.
In India, over 600 million of its population of 1 billion people have been forced to defecate in the open, causing approximately 200,000 child deaths a year due to diarrhea.
This also creates a problem for women; because of basic privacy issues, they must only relieve themselves at night, and they are more vulnerable to accidents or even physical attacks.
The goal is to create a toilet that is not reliant on an intricate infrastructure of sewage, water and energy to operate
The first step in achieving the toilet revolution is to alter people’s way of thinking. Years of poor sanitation habits must be transformed. This costs money, and nongovernment agencies are pushing for education on the basics of proper sanitation to be taught in schools and through the media.
public toilets are as much a perk for tourists as they are necessities for locals.
China's toilet revolution is progressing faster than expected.Now time for India.
