New Delhi: 9th October 2013
In the country around 632 million people have no access to sanitation and the poor hygiene continues to be one of the major causes of sickness and deaths. "The lack of sanitation continues to be a silent disaster with shockingly high human costs. Unless sanitation programmes are scaled up, the most vulnerable will fall behind even further," said Dr S.P. Agarwal, secretary-general of Indian Red Cross Society at a partnership meeting hosted here today by the society, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
