Proportion of Hh with No Sanitation 2012
Diarrhea is one of the five most common causes of child mortality globally and an indicator of the lack of sanitation and clean water facilities. The proportion of the population using an improved sanitation facility is an important indicator of the likelihood of clean water and contraction of diarrhea and other diseases. Across the ten communes, the proportion of the population that uses improved sanitation is low at 22%. Many communes such as Tiburon, Ile à Vache and Chardonnières fall well below the rural average of 17%, according 2006 WHO numbers. Ile a Vache has the lowest proportion of the population using an improved sanitation facility at 9% and Tiburon at 10%. For more information please read the 10 commune baseline report here.
