Two and a half billion people do not have access to proper sanitation, including toilets or latrines. World Toilet Day (WTD) is a campaign to motivate and mobilize millions around the world on issues of sanitation. Originally established by the World Toilet Organization in 2001, this day to draw attention to global sanitation issues is marked each year on November 19. In 2013, the United Nations (UN) passed a resolution recognizing WTD as an official UN international day.
