Abstract: "Official statistics suggest that somewhere in the order of 2.6 billion people do not have access to 'improved' sanitation. Seventy-five per cent (1.98 billion) live in Asia, 18% (0.47 billion) in Africa, and 5% (0.13 billion) in Latin America and the Caribbean. The numbers may be even higher and this lack of sanitation at the household is exacerbated when the availability of sanitation in schools is limited as well."
