CHAIRPERSON, ARGHYAM
"It is wonderful to see a platform like the India Sanitation Coalition take off. The time is absolutely right. Universal access to safe sanitation is a high priority for India. Our public health outcomes depend heavily on creating this access. Certainly, this needs many players to co-operate, innovate, and execute with speed and at scale. However, we need to ensure that we create a sustainable sanitation infrastructure in the country, looking carefully at the entire waste stream. We also need to enthuse people to sign on to this Abhiyan and reflect that in the appropriate usage of sanitation infrastructure. Arghyam has been working successfully in this space for 10 years, and we are happy to partner with the Coalition in this mission."
