People practicing open defecation refers to the percentage of the population defecating in the open, such as in fields, forest, bushes, open bodies of water, on beaches, in other open spaces or disposed of with solid waste. Improved sanitation includes flush/pour flush (to piped sewer system, septic tank, pit latrine), ventilated improved pit (VIP) latrine, pit latrine with slab, and composting toilet.
The environmental sanitation situation in Kampalas peri-urban areas was reviewed and investigated through field studies, structured interviews with personnel from key institutions and administration of questionnaires to households in a selected peri-urban settlement (Bwaise III Parish). In this settlement, specific field and laboratory measurements were undertaken so as to create a better understanding of the environmental sanitation situation, anthropogenic pollution loads and their transport and impact (with a focus on Phosphorus) in Kampalas Peri-urban areas in pursuit of interventions for improving the environmental sanitation and protecting the shallow groundwater resource there. The review revealed that the urban poor in Kampala, like elsewhere in developing countries, are faced with inadequate basic services caused by a combination of institutional, legal and socio-economic issues and that the communities coping strategies are in most cases detrimental to their health and well-being. ...

A systematic review of the literature on the effects of water and sanitation in schools was performed. The goal was to characterize the impacts of water and sanitation inadequacies in the academic environment. Published peer reviewed literature was screened and articles that documented the provision of water and sanitation at schools were considered. Forty-one peer-reviewed papers met the criteria of exploring the effects of the availability of water and/or sanitation facilities in educational establishments. Chosen studies were divided into six fields based on their specific foci: water for drinking, water for handwashing, water for drinking and handwashing, water for sanitation, sanitation for menstruation and combined water and sanitation. The studies provide evidence for an increase in water intake with increased provision of water and increased access to water facilities. Articles also report an increase in absenteeism from schools in developing countries during menses due to inadequate sanitation
Unsafe sanitation is a massive problem that is becoming more urgent as our global population increases and trends like water scarcity and urbanization intensify. About 4.5 billion people-more than half the worlds population-either practice open defecation or use unsafe sanitation facilities and services. To be effective, sanitation must be carefully managed at all stages, from the point that waste is collected and contained to how it is transported and treated. If there are gaps or breaks at any stage, then harmful human waste flows into surface waters and fields where children play and people of all ages live, eat, drink and bathe.. Poor sanitation, which is widely accepted as a chief contributor to waterborne diseases, is the cause of more than 1,200 deaths of children under five-years-old per day, more than AIDS, measles, and tuberculosis combined. Inadequate sanitation and hygiene were the cause of more than half a million deaths from diarrhea alone, in 2016. Despite the indisputable ...

The National Sanitation and Hygiene Technical Committee (NSHTC) on 14th January declared TA Chikowi from Zomba Open Defecation Free Zone. Senior Chief Chikowi will be the 137th TA in Malawi to attain the ODF status. Hygiene Village acknowledges problems associated with sanitation and hygiene in Zomba District. Sanitation and hygiene remains a very big challenge which is mainly attributed to low literacy levels and hence lack of appreciation for the importance of good sanitation. Low household income levels further exacerbates the poor sanitation conditions of the targeted communities. According to the 2014 MDG End Line Survey for Zomba (Zomba SEP), the percentage of household members using an improved sanitation facility which is not shared was at 49% compared to Malawi (41%) and Southern Region (28%). Although Zomba District has a higher rate, there is need to do more to address the situation. Overall, 7% of rural households in Zomba have no toilet facility at all. This again implies that there ...

In a bid to improve the health and well-being of millions of people worldwide, the United Nations on 21 June 2011 launched a major push to accelerate progress towards the goal of halving, by 2015, the proportion of the population without access to basic sanitation.. Access to sanitation has been recognized by the UN as a human right, a basic service required to live a normal life. And yet, some 2.6 billion people, or half the population in the developing world, still lack access to improved sanitation.. The drive, Sustainable sanitation: The Five-Year-Drive to 2015, was established by the General Assembly in a resolution adopted last December that called on Member States to redouble efforts to close the sanitation gap, one of the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that world leaders have pledged to achieve by 2015.. The resolution also called for an end to open defecation, the most dangerous sanitation practice for public health and one practiced by over 1.1 billion people who have no ...
Access to improved sanitation facilities refers to the percentage of the urban population using improved sanitation facilities.

They include flush/pour flush (to piped sewer system,septic tank, pit latrine), ventilated improved pit (VIP) latrine, pit latrine with slab, and composting toilet.
No wonder George Castanza didnt go to the bathroom in India and it costs the country 54 Billion dollars a year! A lack of toilets and poor hygiene practices in India cost Asias third largest economy almost $54 billion every year, the World Bank said on Monday.. Premature deaths, treatment for the sick, wasted time and productivity, as well as lost tourism revenues, are the main reasons for the high economic losses, the bank said in a report.. For decades, we have been aware of the significant impacts of inadequate sanitation in India, Christopher Juan Costain, the World Banks head for South Asias water and sanitation programme, told a news conference.. The report quantifies the economic losses to India, and shows that children and poor households bear the brunt of poor sanitation.. The study Economic impacts of inadequate sanitation in India is based on figures taken from 2006, but experts say these remain similar now. It said the largest economic loss was as a result of poor public ...
Halving the proportion of people without access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation is the least on-track target of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), as 2.5 billion people still lack basic sanitation facilities. A lack of investment in water, hygiene, and sanitation as well as government failure to plan country-wide programs has hindered progress, according to the U.N. Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking Water report… (Anderson, 11/19).. Thomson Reuters Foundation: Almost two billion people use water contaminated by ...
The projects offer a vastly increased and more equitable provision of water and sanitation services to the project towns. The projects, especially access to public toilets and stand pipes, will bring about significant changes and together with the implementation of micro-finance schemes for household level latrine construction will improve the quality of peoples lives in the project area and tackling poverty, gender and health issues.. The water supply projects vastly increase the access, availability, reliability, quantity and quality of water to each of the project towns, especially benefiting the poor. In common with sanitation projects they will have a significant impact on public health and general living conditions. The projects will reduce the use of water from contaminated sources and those of unreliable quality and yield such as shallow wells and surface water, reducing the incidence of water borne disease.. Increased access to sufficient clean water supplies within 200m of properties ...
Diarrhoeal diseases are still a major challenge in Nepal because of inadequate safe water supply, poor sanitation and living conditions. However, several other factors such as the literacy rate, socio-economic status, and social, religious or personal perception of the cause of disease may influence the rate of morbidity and mortality of diarrhoeal diseases. A yearly minimum death of 30,000 and morbidity of 3.3 episodes per child was estimated due to diarrhoea. An environmental health education programme, along with water supply and sanitation intervention, is an effective mitigation measure to reduce diarrhoeal diseases in Nepal. ...

The expert noted that the Latin American region met the UN Millennium Development Goal target for water in 2010, but the advancements are still not reaching all. Regarding sanitation, the goal remains unachieved and 3 million people still practice open defecation. Because of stricter definitions for the related goals within the framework of the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development these will reveal an even more dramatic lack of access to safe water and sanitation in the region, he warned. When people have inadequate living and housing conditions, where they do not have access to safely managed water services, they tend to store water in unsafe ways that attract mosquitos, the UN expert on adequate housing, Leilani Farha, noted. In addition, poor sanitation systems where wastewater flows through open channels and is disposed of in unsafe pits leads to stagnant water and unfit housing - a perfect habitat for breeding mosquitos. The right to the full enjoyment of the highest attainable ...
Watershed management, an ancient concept, was defined in Vedic texts from India that date from 1,000 B.C. This concept has been an integral part of forest and rangeland management in North America throughout the 20th century, but its scope has broadened significantly. Although the Forest Reserve Act of 1891 created the reserves that were to become the core of the National Forest System, it was the Pettigrew Amendment to the 1897 Sundry Civil Appropriations Bill that defined the purpose of the forest reserves. The amendment stated that the reserves could be established only to ...improve and protect the forest within the reservation, or for the purpose of securing favorable conditions of water flows.... Clearly, the interpretation of watershed management within the context of forestry in 1897 was for water supply and flood prevention. By mid-century, forest and watershed management had broadened to encompass recreation, range, wildlife, and fish purposes (Multiple Use Act of 1960). In the ...
Sanitation is a passion, not a job, said Noma Neseni last year at the Global Forum on Sanitation and Hygiene in Mumbai, India. I became a human rights commissioner because of toilets.

BACKGROUND: Parasitic infection is the most prevalent among rural communities in warm and humid regions and where water, hygiene and sanitation facilities are inadequate. Such infection occurs in rural areas where water supplies are not enough to drink and use, and in the absence of environmental sanitation, when the rubbish and other wastes increased, and sewage and waste water are not properly treated. Hence the aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of intestinal parasitosis and associated risk factors ...
The improvement of water quality is closely associated with man-environment relationships. There should be a dialogue between all actors and the community when undertaking water and sanitation activities. For positive results and better sustainability, the community should be involved and participate at all stages of water development and environmental sanitation schemes. A combination of safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and hygiene practices like hand washing is a pre-requisite for morbidity and mortality rate reduction, especially among under five years old children in developing countries. To reduce the incidence and prevalence of diarrhoeal diseases, improvements in the availability, quantity, and quality of water, improved sanitation, and general personal and environmental hygiene are required. The majority of people in developing countries do not have access to piped drinking water and must carry; transport and store water within their homes and in the process the quality of water may
Student Rebuilders: The world water crisis has many complex parts that are all related: drinking water scarcity, food insecurity, declining ocean health, gender inequality and climate change-just to name a few. In this blog post, Water Wisdom is focusing on the Sanitation Crisis. Like drinking water, access to sanitation facilities is recognized as a basic human right, yet billions of people continue to live without it, contributing to the spread of disease and even death. Many sanitation activists feel that drinking water gets all the glory, while sanitation remains taboo; but they are both equally essential for a safe and healthy community. Jack Sim, Founder of the World Toilet Organization wants to make toilets as cool as cell phones - read more below to see how his solutions can impact the problem..

Preamble We, the Ministers and Heads of Delegations responsible for sanitation and hygiene in Africa, together with senior civil servants, academics, civil society, development partners and the private sector at the 4thAfrican Conference on Sanitation and Hygiene (AfricaSan), convened by the Government of Senegal with support from the African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) in Dakar, Senegal, May 25-27, 2015: Recognizing that while an estimated 133 million people living in Africa gained improved sanitation since 1990, the level of progress has not kept pace with demographic change; many countries do not have adequate high-level leadership, financial and human resources to implement existing policies, fail to tackle equity, do not build, manage or maintain sanitation systems and services, or create the large-scale hygiene behaviour change; Mindful that an estimated 61% of people living in Africa do not have access to improved sanitation and that 21% still defecate in the open; Noting that ...
Analyzing the survey results, Camila Gadotti, Professional Service Account Representative for 3M Food Safety Department was surprised there were still a proportion of respondents (though small) who didnt have a cleaning and sanitation program in place. This is such an important part of food safety and quality, and yet we still have some people who dont have a program in place. Also majority of people still rely on visual check, which is not a good system for a sanitation program.. Since respondents could check more than one choice for which method they used, a lot of people did visual check in conjunction with other microbial or ATP swab testing. Of these methods, Gadotti pointed out that microbial testing, given that it could take 24 to 48 hours to get results, would be a slow process. In this time frame, the product could have been sold in the market. So while the test results could still be used for corrective steps to improve sanitation, its not the ideal choice for testing.. Instead, ...
The Millennium Development Goals (MDG) provide clear targets by 2015 and it turns out that sanitation is by far the largest of all the MDG targets affecting about 40% of the global population. The objective of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) is to show how Sustainable Sanitation projects should be planned with participation of stakeholders through capacity development activities. Developing the capacity of societies to collaboratively learn through change and uncertainty is fundamental for sustainability science. The aim of this contribution it is to analyze the role of graph database management (GDM) for improve capacity development and knowledge building in the Sustainable Sanitation framework. We provide a theoretical model with four features of network research: link analysis, social network, pattern recognition and keyword search that we illustrate with some examples. Network research allows us to observe how the information in Sustainable Sanitation is scattered properly ...

This 2013 update presents country and regional estimates for the year 2011 and global trends in sanitation, open defecation and access to drinking-water for the period 1990-2011. It also introduces the process of formulating proposals for post-2015 targets and corresponding indicators for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH ...
Sanitation has received little attention from law and policy makers, and implementers for a long time although it was not completely outside the purview of laws and policies in India. The past couple of decades have witnessed a significant change in the manner in which sanitation is viewed, both at the national and international levels. While this change is accompanied by a growing interest among academics and practitioners in the policy perspectives on sanitation, the enquiry into its legal dimensions has lagged behind considerably. This book is the first comprehensive study of the right to sanitation and its multiple dimensions with a special emphasis on India. It analyses the right in terms of its narrow understanding focusing on toilets and various broader components, such as its gender, social, environmental dimensions, as well as specific issues such as manual scavenging and the conditions of work of sanitation workers.

My mother believed you got trachoma from crying, said Neter Nadew, a 36-year-old Ethiopian mother of four who suffers as her mother did from trachoma, a bacterial eye disease that can lead to blindness. Nadews mother was forced to pluck out her eyelashes to prevent the onset of blindness in the later stages of the disease. Today, thanks to the Carter Centers Trachoma Control Program, Nadew knows face washing and good environmental sanitation prevent trachoma.. The leading cause of preventable blindness in the world, trachoma is found in communities with limited access to medical care, health education, and environmental sanitation. Because of their traditional role as caregivers, women are particularly vulnerable to this painful disease. Through their continual close contact with young children, who form the primary pool of infection, mothers are exposed to the repeated infection that can lead to severe trachoma and blindness. Three out of four people blinded by trachoma in Ethiopia are ...

The result is a disorganized urban fabric, where water and sanitation networks are almost non-existent. Its disadvantaged population thus lives in a harmful environment, where solid waste mixes with liquid waste, on the doorstep. The health risks are significant: lack of sanitation is the main cause of diarrhoeal diseases.. This is why the Djibouti National Water and Sanitation Office has embarked on a major sanitation program. Its objective: to set up a wastewater collection system, up to the treatment plant. To build this network, ONEAD has received financial support of € 12M from the European Union, whose management has been delegated to AFD.. ©AFD2020. ...

Since the beginning of the year, a total of 17,451 infections have been reported nationwide, in addition to four deaths in the southern provinces of Kien Giang, An Giang and Long An.. The number of infections has quadrupled, warned the MoH adding the surge mainly occurred in the southern region, including Dong Nai, Long An, Dong Thap, An Giang and Ho Chi Minh City.. It is common for cases of the hand-foot-mouth disease to increase in numbers between April and May and between September and October. Indeed, children can be infected with the disease when their personal hygiene and environmental sanitation conditions are not maintained.. The MoH therefore urged localities to strengthen preventive measures this summer, including encouraging people, especially children, to wash hands with soap and keep the living environment clean.. Healthcare facilities were required to avoid disease cross-transmissions and limit the number of deaths.. ...
factor analysis were employed for data analysis. The result shows that the majority of the households interviewed are adults with secondary school certificate.

As a city of 8 million people became a city of 8.5 million, it only took a glance skyward at any given time to note the booming population in every borough, with tall towers and boutique buildings springing up like weeds in formerly less-bustling neighborhoods. Its just as noticeable closer to the ground as an exploding populations trash threatens to reach skyscraper proportions, too, taxing the citys sanitation infrastructure. From street cleaning to curbside sanitation pickup to volunteer adopt-a-basket efforts in tourist zones and parks, the job of keeping the city clean is getting out of hand, the New York Times reports. Yet the garbage keeps growing. The citys sanitation department spent $58.2 million last year to keep the streets clean, up from $49.5 million the previous year, as well as expanding and adding routes, putting more people on duty to empty sidewalk baskets and adding Sunday service; Staten Island got its first street sweeper last year..

Swimming pool sanitation is the process of ensuring healthy conditions in swimming pools, hot tubs, plunge pools, and similar recreational water venues. Proper sanitation is needed to maintain the visual clarity of water and to prevent the transmission of infectious waterborne diseases. Sanitation methods include a water filter to remove pollutants, disinfection to kill infectious microorganisms, swimmer hygiene to minimize the introduction of contaminants into pool water, and regular testing of pool water, including chlorine and pH levels. The World Health Organization has published international guidelines for the safety of swimming pools and similar recreational-water environments, including standards for minimizing microbial and chemical hazards. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also provides information on pool sanitation and water related illnesses for health professionals and the public. The main organizations providing certifications for pool and spa operators ...
The rapid trend towards urbanization in lower- and middle-income countries over the past half-century has significant implications for economic development, health, and the environment.

In this novel application of analytic coding methods to state human rights reports, the authors trace the relationship between human rights advancements on water and sanitation and treaty body monitoring of water and sanitation systems. These results raise an imperative for universal human rights indicators on the rights to water and sanitation, providing an empirical basis to develop universal indicators that would streamline reporting to human rights treaty bodies, facilitate monitoring of state reports, and ensure accountability for human rights implementation.. ...
The article aimed to find the causes of microbial contamination of drinking water source, by exploring the influencing factors of water on the incidence of diarrhea in children. Random stratified-cluster sampling was used to study Li and Han communities of rural Lingshui County with regards to water quality and environmental sanitation. Water samples were evaluated for microbial contamination using drinking water standard (GB5750 China, WHO Guidelines 4th). Data was compared between ethnic groups. Li communities had more contamination than Han. The correlation between the frequency of diarrhea among children and the presence of microorganisms in the water was positive, for both total coliforms and Escherichia coli (E. coli). Regression analysis showed the substandard risk factors of total coliforms for source water were type of water supply (OR = 3.508) and garbage disposal methods (OR = 2.430). For E. coli, risk factors included the source of water supply (OR = 2.417); depth of wells (OR = ...
Schistosomiasis is caused by infection with trematodes S. mansoni, S. mekongi, S.japonicum and S. intercalatum. Urinary Schistosomiasis is caused by infection with S.haematobium.. Schistosomiasis is known to be highly endemic across Tanzania with published data suggesting that all regions have some level of infection. This can range from 12.7% to 87.6% for schistosomiasis. Urine questionnaire mapping for S. haematobium has been conducted in every school for the entire country in addition to limited mapping by stool examination for S. mansoni prevalence around the Lake Victoria regions.. The major contributory factors to such high levels of infection are limited access to safe water and lack of or poor environmental sanitation. Individuals are therefore continually exposed to the parasites and re-infection levels are high.. The consequences of these diseases globally are well documented, but particularly within Tanzania which has been a major focus for research into the transmission dynamics and ...

The center also transferred waste to landfills as part of its campaign to remove waste from
Water and sanitation interventions in developing countries have historically been difficult to evaluate. We conducted a seroepidemiologic study with the following goals: 1) to determine the feasibility of using antibody markers as indicators of waterborne pathogen infection in the evaluation of water and sanitation intervention projects; 2) to characterize the epidemiology of waterborne diarrheal infections in rural Guatemala, and 3) to measure the age-specific prevalence of antibodies to waterborne pathogens. Between September and December 1999, all children 6-36 months of age in 10 study villages were invited to participate. We collected sufficient serum from 522 of 590 eligible children, and divided them into six-month age groups for analysis (6-12, 13-18, 19-24, 25-30, and 31-36 months). The prevalence of antibodies was lowest in children 6-12 months old compared with the four older age groups for the following pathogens: enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (48%, 81%, 80%, 77%, and 83%), Norwalk virus

The Lancet piece dealt with the primacy of water and sanitation in global development, and drew attention to the likelihood that the world will fail to meet the MDG on sanitation. It also highlighted the regional disparities which are masked by global progress on the water MDG (viz. progress in India and China masking a lack of such progress in subSaharan Africa). Also of note in the one page editorial was the continued/continuing lack of prioritization of water and sanitation in budgets throughout the developing world ...

Impact on disease burden due to inadequate and unsafe water, lack of sanitation and poor hygiene behaviour is a complex issue [1]. The occurrence and severity of Hygiene related outbreaks in endemic areas is greatly enhanced by human behaviour with regards the practice of healthy hygiene [2-4]. Poor hygiene behaviour is a major problem in developing countries [5]. Hygiene and sanitation related Diseases are a huge burden in developing countries; Causing many people to fall ill even to die [2], Schools have repeatedly been implicated in the spread of gastrointestinal disease, High among primary school going children [5-9].. Improvements in hygiene behaviour are the most important barrier to many infectious diseases, because with safe behaviour and appropriate facilities, people reduce their risk of becoming exposed to diseases [1-5]. A study conducted by FEACHEM R. G stated that hygiene behaviour influences the pattern of diarrhoeal spread. Water handling, latrine utilization behaviour, and ...
The cost of villagers installing their own basic latrine is on average CFA 1,000 ($ 20). The latrine lasts two to five years, so is a good investment. Diabous been sensitized on the cost of not installing latrines. If a child gets sick from a disease related to poor sanitation, they dont go to school, the mother doesnt go to work in the field to look after the child, and they all go to hospital which is an expense in itself.. A year earlier a community liaison health worker came to the village through the GSF programme to explain to villagers why construction of latrines and hand washing are important. Emphasis is placed on giving responsibility to the village - they ask for the intervention through a demand-based approach. Community participation is both in terms of personal involvement (digging their latrines) and financial involvement (financing their latrines). The long term use of the latrines and the hand washing station is assessed by the programme organizers.. In Senegal Terranga ...
Water. It is vital to our existence. It sustains and renews life. But if its contaminated, water brings disease and even death.. Many people living in developing nations, especially in rural regions, simply dont know the dangers of unclean water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. They dont know that the water they drink to stay alive hides illnesses that can kill.. Approximately 780 million people in the world do not have access to an improved water source. Its estimated that 801,000 children under the age of five die from water-borne illness each year. Thats nearly 2,200 little ones dying each day from preventable diseases.(1). We believe the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes. We are working to provide clean water and sanitation to every man, woman, and child in every Ethiopian community where MJAA works, especially among the displaced Jewish community often found in some of the hardest to reach places.. Safe, Clean Drinking Water. While providing ...
Key informants and development agents indicated various site specific challenges with watershed management activities. The key informant in Bucha kebele explained that soil is too hard to dig and it is difficult to achieve the work norm stated in Work norm and supply of tools. In the lower watershed of this kebele, planting grass on soil bunds/fanya juu is poorly practiced compared to other parts of the micro-watershed, which may be due to the large land area per household, as the areas population density appears to be low. In contrary, in many areas land shortage challenges the size of channel and embankments. In various kebeles, farmers reduced conservation structure embankment widths in order to have more land for crops. This resulted in many soil and water conservation structures being overtopped by flooding.. Sustaining community participation in structure construction and management is other challenge in Abela Faracho and Abela Sifa kebeles. Participant numbers are small because it is a ...
SRINAGAR: With over 11 lakh individual household toilets (IHHLs) and 1,350 community sanitary complexes constructed across the state in past four years, Jammu and Kashmir was today declared open defecation free (ODF), achieving the target one year in advance.. The significant announcement was made by Governor Satya Pal Malik on Saturday in an official function at the Sher-i-Kashmir International Conference Centre, where he also launched the Swachhata Hi Seva (SHS) Programme for J&K, a fortnight long program (till 2nd October) for public awareness and involvement of community.. Congratulating the state administration for efforts in making the state 100 per cent ODF, Malik observed that due to sustained efforts of all the stakeholders, Jammu and Kashmir has achieved 100 per cent toilet coverage and has become ODF one year in advance..

The three studies for the development of the strategy were not realized, mainly due to the security situation. Of the 4,300 hectares of plantations which were planned at appraisal, only 307 hectares were planted by the end of the project. The pilot logging operation was not implemented due to the security situation. Very limited progress was made in the adaptive research program due to the security situation, the loan portion financing watershed management was canceled in 1996. Time-consuming government procurement procedures slowed implementation. The failure by the General Directorate of Forestry to recruit an economist principal as head of the project management team hampered implementation. M&E was critical for a pilot project. However the lack of consultants and, again, the security situation made M&E very difficult. For a long period, Bank supervision missions were carried out from outside the country. ...

Thursday, August 13, 2015. On a stormy day in Dakar, Tina Gomis, a local woman in Sicap Mbao, laughs at the idea of selling her own excrement to the government. But this may soon become a reality in a city with a reputation for terrible waste management.. A pioneering SMS service and waste treatment system is dramatically bringing down sanitation costs in Senegals capital and, if successful, may even lead to customers making a small profit from their ordure instead of paying someone to take it away.. We want to turn poo into gold; its not waste, but a raw material, says Mbaye Mbeguere, from the Senegal National Sanitation Utility (ONAS).. Its a far cry from the current situation where, according to ONAS, 80% of people in Dakar use pit latrines. But the high costs fixed by the pit emptiers association has driven many to seek cheaper alternatives, often at the expense of the environment and their own health.. When the pits get full, people dig makeshift holes around their house to transfer ...

This 5.5 x 9 (13.97 x 13.97 cm), 64-page pamphlet written by Joel Roberts recounts the 1849 cholera epidemic in Sandusky. The last five pages of the diary list people who died in the epidemic. Cholera was a major threat in the 19th century. Due to poor sanitation and ignorance of the causes of disease, Sandusky suffered several cholera outbreaks in the 1840s and 1850s. The most devastating outbreak occurred in the summer of 1849, when 400 people died and many more fled the city in fear. The citys population before the outbreak was about 5,000; it is estimated that fewer than 1,000 remained in the city during the cholera. The 1882 History of Sandusky County reported that medical men [were] taxed to their utmost to stem the tide of disease and death. The devastation caused by cholera and other epidemics helped to inspire improvements in medical care, research, and sanitation practices such as water treatment ...
