Sanitation is a vital component of public health and well-being. It has far-reaching implications for the physical and mental health of individuals, communities, and nations. Poor sanitation can lead to the spread of infectious diseases, water contamination, malnutrition, and other serious problems. It also impacts social cohesion due to unequal access to adequate sanitation services and lack of public awareness about its importance.The first step in ensuring good sanitation is providing access to safe drinking water, proper hygiene practices (including handwashing with soap), proper disposal of human waste, treatment or reuse of wastewater or greywater for reuse purposes, solid waste management including recycling or composting systems and the prevention of vector-borne disease transmission through insect control measures such as larval source management.In addition to these basic needs, governments should also strive to raise public awareness about the consequences of improper sanitation practices. Educational campaigns should be launched in schools emphasizing the importance of sanitary conditions provided by local authorities as well as individual actions that can be taken at home such as proper disposal/treatment/reuse/recycling/composting facilities for human waste; garbage segregation; composting systems; effective rodent control; use of chemical disinfectants for cleaning kitchenware etc., and appropriate use/disposal methods for hazardous materials such as mosquito nets or medical sharps e.g syringes used by diabetics etcetera. Finally, governments must provide financial support towards improving infrastructureupgrading sewer networks; constructing collection points & safe disposal sites; providing incentives towards efficient waste management facilitiesto ensure improved level & quality service provision in order to effectively combat poor sanitation practices particularly in rural areas where poverty is still an issue that affects many people leading them towards continuous sufferings due poor hygiene standards & diseases outbreaks caused by inadequate sewerage systems & lack thereof any kind of garbage collection points..
