WHO launches the first global guidelines on sanitation and health

New Delhi. WHO has launched the first global guidelines on sanitation and health. The world will not reach the goal of universal sanitation coverage – where every person in the world has access to toilets that safely contain excreta – by 2030 unless countries make comprehensive policy shifts and invest more funds, said WHO.

President Heart Care Foundation of India & President Elect CMAAO Padma Shri Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal told, the new guidelines set out four principal recommendations:

Sanitation interventions should ensure entire communities have access to toilets that safely contain excreta.

The full sanitation system should be undergone local health risk assessments to protect individuals and communities from exposure to excreta – whether this be from unsafe toilets, leaking storage or inadequate treatment.

Sanitation should be integrated into regular local government-led planning and service provision to avert the higher costs associated with retrofitting sanitation and to ensure sustainability.

The health sector should invest more and play a coordinating role in sanitation planning to protect public health.
