"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.

The proverb 'cleanliness is next to godliness' expresses the idea that those who are pure and wholesome are close to God. When the proverb was put forward, in the 17th century, cleanliness (or clenlynesse or cleanlines as it was spelled then) referred to both moral purity and to personal hygiene.

Safe water, sanitation and hygiene (collectively known as WASH) are crucial for human health and well-being.
Sanitation and hygiene are critical to health, survival, and development. Many countries are challenged in providing adequate sanitation for their entire populations, leaving people at risk for water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH)-related diseases.

The world did not achieve the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goal (MDG) sanitation target (i.e., to halve the proportion of people without sustainable access to basic sanitation by 2015). Now, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development goal (SDG) is for everyone to have “adequate and equitable” sanitation by 2030 3.
