First Global Guidelines on Sanitation and Health launched by World Health organisation
  World Health Organization (WHO) launched its first Global Guidelines on Sanitation and Health.

According to estimation, for every US$ 1 invested in sanitation a nearly six-fold return can be expected.

The new guidelines are based on four principal recommendations. They are:

Accessible toilets, for entire communities, that safely contain excreta, through Sanitation interventions.

Local health risk assessments to protect individuals and communities from exposure to excreta.

Integration of sanitation into regular local government-led planning and service provision

The health sector should invest more and play a coordinating role in sanitation planning to protect public health.

♦ Director-General: Tedros Adhanom.
