Title Improved sanitation
(from Freebase)
According to the Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation by the World Health Organization and UNICEF the following are considered as "improved" sanitation: Sanitation solutions that are not considered as "improved" are: Excreta disposal systems are considered adequate if they are private and if they separate human excreta from human contact. The above-mentioned definition of an "improved" source is used to measure the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal related to sanitation in developing countries. In practice, it is often hard to ascertain during a survey or a census which type of sanitation solution is considered improved or not, thus leading to difficulties in comparing data on the access to sanitation from various sources over the years.
