2021 World Toilet Day Commemoration

World Toilet Day (WTD) is a day set aside internationally by the United Nations to create awareness of the value of toilets among the larger population in the sense that, lack of a safely managed toilet in one home can affect the health of the entire community. This day is to also draw the attention of Governments to adequately budget for sanitation and sanitation related services especially in the poorest and the most marginalized communities. This is also in line with the making of strong efforts to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 6 which is to ensure the attainment of Water and Sanitation For All By 2030.

It is for the above purpose that 19th November of every year has been internationally earmarked as the ’’World Toilet Day’’ and worth commemorating to inspire action to tackle the global sanitation crisis and help achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6).
