Inadequate sanitation causes negative effects on both public health and the environment. Diseases transmitted by the faecal-oral route threaten in particular children at a young age. Unsafe drinking water and lack of hygienic sanitation are resulting in several intestinal diseases like diarrhoea or typhoid fever. To improve the sanitary conditions, to prevent infection and the pollution of groundwater, dry urine diverting toilets were built at a primary school in Garla Mare, Romania.
