USAID and LIXIL Announce New Global Partnership to Expand Access to Sanitation

On Wednesday, October 14, 2020, USAID announced a new partnership agreement with the global sanitation company LIXIL to extend market-based solutions for sanitation and hygiene to underserved and vulnerable communities around the world.

The partnership agreement builds on previous collaboration between LIXIL and USAID and will scale LIXIL's SATO latrine and toilet products in up to 11 countries across sub-Saharan Africa and Asia to combat the global sanitation crisis. More than two billion people around the world lack access to high-quality sanitation.
