Sulabh to launch toilets with health centres in DelhiJanuary 16th, 2012 - 7:32 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Jan 16 (IANS) In a new model of providing affordable healthcare and sanitation facilities, Sulabh International will introduce toilet complexes with attached healthcare centres in the capital, the NGOs founder Bindeshwar Pathak said here Monday.
“Sanitation has also been our prime goal. After seeing the pilot project project of healthcare centre with toilets go successful, we are planning to have more such toilets in the capital within an year,” Pathak, founder of the Sulabh movement, said.
The NGO is currently managing over 120 public toilets in the capital, with many of them handed over to the civic agencies after construction. The toilets with health centres will also be based on the concept of “pay-and-use” coming at a price of Rs.2.
“Two health centres attached to Sulabh toilet complexes are providing free medical services to slum dwellers. One of such models is in Palam,” Pathak added.
The Indian NGO has already played a key role in construction of public toilets in several countries including Afghanistan, South Africa, China, Bhutan, Nepal, Laos, Ethiopia and 10 other countries of Africa.
