Sanitary Facilities and Health

Date: 19/11/2020 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

November 19 is World Toilet Day.

Providing sanitary facilities to all inhabited places is one of the important problems indispensable in protecting natural environment, promoting the people’s health and ensuring hygienic and cultured living conditions.

According to available data, many places across the world are not provided with elementary sanitary facilities, and this exerts negative influences upon the people’s health and children’s growth.

Accordingly, the international community calls on all countries to make vigorous efforts to help their people use safe sanitary facilities.

The DPRK set it as a priority construction of urban and rural communities to provide sanitary facilities convenient to living and has endeavoured to this end.

It enacted various laws and regulations, including the law on environmental protection, the law on urban management, the law on water supply and drainage and the law on urban landscaping and ensured that all the citizens strictly observe them. It also makes sure that all-people campaigns to improve hygienic environments are launched on such occasions as clean-up months in March, April, September and October and urban landscaping months in April and October.

The urban management sector is expanding sewage treatment capacity in order to deal with the increasing amount of urban sewage in time.

The dwelling houses in the countryside are improving their sanitary facilities to dispose of excrement safely and widely introducing biogas.
