We all do it, up to eight times a day - many of us more - and yet it is still taboo to talk about our need to go to the toilet. It is a problem that we are all facing - there are not enough public toilets. However, it is a problem that the elderly, disabled, chronically ill and parents with children are facing all the more frequently - there are not enough accessible public toilets.
Accessible toilets enable disabled people to be independent and lead healthier more dignified lives. Simple adaptations can make a world of difference allowing a disabled person to use a latrine rather than needing to defecate in the open. An end to poor health and to debilitating diarrhoea.
