Improved versus unimproved sanitation

Improving access to safe sanitation facilities can be especially beneficial to women and girls, as they are more vulnerable to violence when using public facilities or seeking privacy for open defecation. It can also increase school attendance, as without proper facilities, menstruating girls may stay home in order to more easily manage menstrual hygiene (Burt, Nelson and Ray 2016). The best toilets are the ones that people will use and maintain. Toilets for women will be most successful if they consider: design, privacy, security and affordable.
