NEW YORK, USA, 21 June 2011 – Sanitation and access to proper toilets must be at the centre of discussions on development, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told a gathering this morning at UN Headquarters that included members of the Secretary-General’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation, and other dignitaries.
“Sanitation is a sensitive issue,” said Mr. Ban. “It is an unpopular subject. Perhaps that is why the sanitation crisis has not been met with the kind of response we need – but that must change.”
