Ethiopia has set ambitious targets for water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). Launched in 2019, the "Total Sanitation to End Open Defecation and Urination" (TSEDU) campaign aims to make Ethiopia open defecation free (ODF) by 2024.
Senegal has made significant strides toward adopting and providing hygienic and environmentally safe sanitation. Basic sanitation coverage has increased while open defecation (OD) levels have decreased.
Access to basic sanitation is a significant challenge in Kenya, especially in rural areas. An estimated 70 percent of Kenya’s population—approximately 36 million people—lack access to basic sanitation.
