According to non-governmental organization WaterAid, more than 93 percent of South Sudanese lack access to an improved toilet—one that ensures hygienic separation of waste from humans.

There is an urgent need to close the gender gap in South Sudan and provide better protection for women and girls, who face continuous distressing levels of sexual and gender-based violence.
