Following the 2010 floods, the Government of Pakistan developed the Pakistan Approach to Total Sanitation (PATS) as a country specific strategy to scale up sanitation programmes, particularly in rural areas to end open defecation. PATS has helped almost 18 million people to construct and use toilets. The last ten million people who need to construct toilets are mostly poor, whereas 176 million need to upgrade their sanitation facilities to meet the SDG target of safely managed sanitation by 2030.
Sanitation products are manufactured and procured in production hubs. Large manufacturers generally produce higher-end sanitary products while smaller-scale manufacturers produce a combination of medium-cost products, but of mixed quality standards. The sanitation industry has not focused on low-cost products in Pakistan. Sanitation products are also imported from China.
