‘Long Way To Go’ To Reach Universal Sanitation Access In Mali

Devex: Rebuilding taps and toilets in Mali
Fatoumata Haidara, WaterAid country representative in Zambia

“Just over a year ago, Mali was plunged into civil war as militants took over the north of the country and France staged a military intervention to push them back. … Before the war, the situation with regards to access to clean drinking water and adequate sanitation was poor. Now it is even worse. … WaterAid reached 43,000 people in Mali last year with safe water, and 39,000 people with sanitation. But we have a long way to go in the area of sanitation as 78 percent of Malians still do not have anywhere safe or hygienic to go to the toilet…” (3/11).
