Toilet Pedestals: Take Your Rural Sanitation up a Notch

Toilet Pedestals: Take Your Rural Sanitation up a Notch

Proper sanitation facilities (for example, toilets and latrines) are essential for promoting health because they allow people to dispose of their waste in the right manner. Thus, they protect the environment and reduce the risk of contamination for themselves and everyone around them.

In many parts of the world, people lack access to sanitation facilities, which results in improper waste disposal that keeps human contact away from waste, and ensures that waste is properly treated before it is discharged into the environment. Lack of basic sanitation facilities can:


  • Result in a contaminated environment due to human waste. If a community doesn't have proper sanitation facilities, waste from infected individuals can contaminate its land and water, increasing the risk of infection for others. Many diseases can be slowed in their progression by proper waste disposal.
  • Contribute to the spread of various diseases and conditions which can spread widely and kill many people. In the absence of adequate sanitation facilities, people are often forced to live and drink water from an environment contaminated with waste from infected individuals, placing themselves at risk for infection in the future. By inadvertently contaminating soil, food, water, and insects like flies, inadequate waste disposal fuels an infection cycle of harmful germs and bacteria.
