Global leaders welcome the Sanitation and Hygiene Fund as key to increasing investment. Sanitation and Hygiene Fund France United Kingdom United States of America Canada India Belgium Germany Italy Netherlands Spain Switzerland Nigeria

and its YouTube channel.

Also participating in the launch programme was Vice President Yemi Osinbajo of Nigeria, who said, "The Sanitation and Hygiene Fund is in many senses a lifesaver. One of the features that I particularly like is that it is tied to measurable performance."

Ms Henrietta Fore, Executive Director of UNICEF, called sanitation and hygiene "a great equalizer for children."

"During a lockdown, how do you cope with the fact that your household does not have a toilet? This is particularly difficult for girls and women. If everyone had access to sanitation and hygiene in households, in their schools, in their health facilities and communities, it would make an enormous difference in our world," she said.

"Good sanitation has to be a public good. Governments have to own the fact that sanitation is their problem to solve, and that they have ways to solve it," Ms Fore added.

Currently, half the world's population do not have access to safely managed sanitation. 620 million children attend schools that do not have toilets. 1 in 3 schools do not have even basic sanitation and hygiene services, and 1 in 5 healthcare facilities have no sanitation services whatsoever. The estimated cost of lack of sanitation and hygiene is US$222 billion per year in lost productivity, increased health expenditures, and economic output.
