Sanitation is of the utmost importance to a nation. Sanitation services promote the health of communities, helping guard against water contaminates which may lead to the development of diarrhoeal diseases.
2.6 billion people in the world lack adequate sanitation and 1.8 million people die every year from diarrhoeal diseases.
It’s very important — just washing one’s hands after defecating can help reduce cases of diarrhea by half in destitute communities. Likewise, it helps fight disease like scabies, pneumonia, cholera, and dysentery (this is mainly relevant to third world countries). In more developed countries, sanitation is still hugely important — the sharp decrease in death rates when countries develop is mostly caused by improved sanitation and improved medicine. For example, Britain didn’t see a plunge in its death rate until somewhat after the Industrial Revolution, when London and other cities adopted sane sanitation practices.
It’s very important. Contaminated drinking water can carry or cause diarrhea, cholera, hepatitis E, and Guinea Worm Disease. Guinea Worm Disease is a debilitating and painful infection caused by a large roundworm. Current research shows that every 3 out of 5 people in Sudan is infected with Guinea Worm Disease. Sudan has had a very public water crises with the scarcity of clean, sanitized water impacting the country’s population in a very big way.
Just like the preceding answers observed, it is of utmost importance to have clean sanitation services. Cleanliness is next to Godliness. In fact, sanitation is inevitable.
Clean sanitation is very important. For instance, the average person cannot survive 3-5 days without water. Water is needed for drinking and cleaning, and if it is not clean, it can contribute to diseases and a lower standard of living. Since humans need their drinking water to have as few impurities as possible, it is even more important that the water they drink is clean.
