International Year of Sanitation 2008
« on: January 14, 2008, 12:09:59 AM »
On 7 May, 2007, experts from the private and public sector will attend the First Planning Meeting on the International Year of Sanitation 2008 to map out an action plan on how to accelerate progress on sanitation.  An estimated 2.6 billion people world wide remain without proper sanitation and thereby lack protection against preventable diseases, which claim the lives of thousands daily, primarily children under the age of five.

The one-day meeting is held at UNICEF House in New York and is hosted by the United Nations Secretary General’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation (UNSGAB), the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) and UNICEF.

For more information about this event, visit UNICEF page.


The Muslim doctor shares with the Muslim patient the two main characteristics:
the faith in God and destiny, and the conviction that there is a cure for every disease.
