Strategic Communication for Total Sanitation Campaign

 

Unsanitary practices, primarily open defecation, and the use of contaminated water remain major causes of child death, disease and malnutrition in India, especially affecting the poor. Only 19 per cent of rural households have toilets, and the rate of increase is a low one per cent per annum. Of India’s more than 700,000 rural primary and upper primary schools, only one in ten have toilets and this situation is a factor in deterring children more so girls, from attending schools. The problem of sanitation is hence one of improving the use of toilets, closely linked to improving personal, home and community hygiene practices across society. Read more....
