Sixty-third General Assembly
Item 68 of the provisional agenda*
Talking about sanitation is not "nice".
It's a matter of life and death. Poor hygiene leads directly to diseases
such as cholera and diarrhea - which in turn kill five million people
a year, mostly children.
Better sanitation facilities could reduce diarrhea-related morbidity by more than one third, while improved hygiene, such as proper hand-washing, can halve the rate of diarrheal disease and respiratory tract infections in the first place.
