"Cleanliness is next to Godliness"
– Mahatma Gandhi

Sanitation and hygiene are two important components related to health. At an individual level and also at a collective level, both become crucial in disease prevention, reducing mortality rate, improving quality of life, better health demographics and building a robust society where members are capable of fully realizing the opportunities of life.

Good sanitation practices such as proper waste disposal, personal hygiene habits, avoiding open defecation & urination, construction of public toilets, sanitation at home & work places are some of the ways for improving sanitation and building a clean and healthy society. In this context, proper education, alternatives to existing conditions, awareness programmes and adequate motivation to opt for healthier practices is significant.
