Domestos is waging a war on poor sanitation because right now a child dies every two minutes from a disease linked to unsafe water and poor sanitation . A toilet can help change this. Our ambition is to help 25 million people gain improved access to a toilet by 2020 and through this, help save and change people’s lives for the better.
We fight the dangers of poor sanitation in two main ways; through our global partnership with UNICEF, and secondly through our schools-based Cleaner Toilets, Brighter Futures programme.
What is sanitation? A definition of sanitation
Sanitation means having reduced human exposure to diseases by providing a clean environment in which to live , which in many instances is the adequate disposal of sewage. It sounds simple, but one in three people globally  don’t have access to either of these things.
What does sanitation mean to human health? British Medical Journal readers voted it the best medical intervention in 150 years . Quite simply, getting sanitation right will have a massive impact on improving human health. When people have their health, it becomes easier to achieve an education, get a job, and ultimately start breaking the cycle of poverty.
Our partnership with UNICEF: Fighting poor sanitation across the world
This partnership between Domestos and UNICEF is proof that working together can help save and change lives. When you buy a specially-marked bottle of Domestos, you don’t just buy an effective germ-kill product for your home, you contribute to UNICEF’s work to help every child have a clean, safe toilet.
Like the children at Goth Mahudi primary school, India, where the partnership provides access to clean, safe toilets, alongside sanitation and hygiene education.
