Community Approaches to Total Sanitation (CATS) aim to achieve 100 per cent open defecation free (ODF) communities through affordable, appropriate technology and behaviour change. Some of the key principles guiding CATS are:
• An emphasis on the sustained use of sanitation facilities by every community member, rather than simply the construction of infrastructure.
• The safe disposal of infant and young children’s faeces in toilets.
Genève, le 27 Novembre 2015- Le PNUD a réalisé des réductions importantes du prix des médicaments contre le VIH qu'il procure. L’organisation a réussi à faire baisser, sans précédent, le coût du traitement de 100 $ par patient et par an en Haïti et d’autres pays comme la Guinée équatoriale, le Mali, le Soudan du Sud, Zambie et Zimbabwe. Grâce à ces réductions de prix le PNUD permet d'économiser 25 millions $ qui sont utilisés pour mettre plus de 250.000 personnes sous ce traitement salvateur contre le VIH.

That's what's happening right now in some of the world's poorest countries.
