Toilets Prevent Disease & Save Lives

It is estimated that nearly 10% of the global disease burden could be reduced through improved water supply, sanitation, hygiene, and water resource management. Unfortunately 90% of the deaths caused by diarrheal diseases are children under 5 years old, mostly in developing countries.
