How can cleanliness in the community (sanitation) prevent sicknesses?
Many common health problems are best solved in the community. When the community works together to improve sanitation, everybody benefits. For example:
- by developing a source of clean water for drinking and cooking.
- by getting rid of garbage in a safe way.
- by draining standing water in washing areas, and in puddles, tires, and open containers.
- by organizing your community to build latrines.
