Toilets for all: Why and how facilities must be improved for the disabled worldwide Mon, 2011-03-28 15:28
Around 10 per cent of the world?s population is disabled, yet few researchers and interventions address improving access to toilets for this marginalised group. SHARE, WaterAid and the Leonard Cheshire Disability and Inclusive Development Centre organised a two-day workshop in March to discuss these issues and how to generate a cost-benefit analysis to persuade policy-makers to take action. In this episode three participants from the workshop – Mahider Tesfu, of WaterAid Ethiopia, Archana Patkar, of the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council, and Jane Scobie, of WaterAid UK ? share their thoughts, examples of best practice and hopes for the future.
