Could you imagine the daily lives of others who have no sanitation to keep them healthy? While imagine this a world with no toilets! In Africa right now there are some people that don't have a proper toilet. Almost 2.6 billion people in the whole world don't have a bathroom to walk into and do there business, this is why many people today have diseases and illnesses. Even though there is limited sources of water in Africa, they have a sanitation day called World water day. This means that "sanitation maters". This day is celebrated to get the billions of people that don't have a proper toilet to try there best to get one or use a local one.
Even though many people strive to be more healthy and sanitary some people fail and die of a disease or mutable. The hypothesis by scientists say that by 2015 2.4 billion people will still be in an unsafe position without a proper toilet. Many of these children involved in this will most likely die. Almost 40% of the world lack toilets and safety in health, strive your very best to be one less and use a proper local toilet to stay as healthy as you can.
There is a lot of difference in health care in developed countries compared to developing or underdeveloped countries. Millions of children die each year in developing countries due to lack of preventive health care, poor sanitation and malnutrition. It is sad to see so many children die from diseases that could be prevented with vaccines or cured with medicines. Southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa have the greatest number of deaths due to preventable diseases. The developed world needs to be aware of these conditions and join forces to help the developing countries. There have been success stories in some areas where malaria, TB and other diseases have been controlled. Half of all deaths due to infectious disease can be prevented.
