A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of Sanitation.
Wikipedia defines the term as follows: “Sanitation refers to public health conditions related to clean drinking water and treatment and disposal of human excreta and sewage. Preventing human contact with faeces is part of sanitation, as is hand washing with soap.”
Sanitation is very important at both, the individual level and for society at large. Sanitation can be done by various means, namely, Container-based sanitation, Basic sanitation, Community-led total sanitation, Dry Sanitation, Ecological sanitation, Emergency sanitation, Environmental sanitation, Onsite sanitation, Safely managed sanitation, and Sustainable sanitation.
Predominantly, proper sanitation ought to be maintained at the personal and public levels. This can be achieved by simple steps such as cleanly washing one’s self, especially one’s hands and nose properly and frequently and disposing of wastes such as medical waste meticulously and with care. This will ensure that diseases do not spread easily and help maintain a healthy environment.
