It is sometimes hard to find a link, but the first toilets appeared 4,000 years ago, and today 297,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor hygiene conditions or lack of drinking water. A long path for sanitation which does not seem to reach a closure at the global level, since the economic and social resources in each country are important factors to be taken into account in terms of achieving universal access to sanitation. The question is, are we ready to look out for the world beyond our borders? 4,000 years of toilet history and the progress made in sanitation should not be in vain. Now is the time to show how important this is: 2030 is just around the corner.
