World Toilet Day is about inspiring action to tackle the global sanitation crisis. Today, 4.5 billion people live without a household toilet that safely disposes of their waste.

The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include the goal of ensuring that everyone have access to a safely managed household toilet by 2030. This makes decent sanitation central to eradicating extreme poverty.

In 2013, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated Nov. 19 as World Toilet Day, which is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners. (World Toilet Day)
