Securing adequate sanitation for women and girls in rural Cambodia can help raise their quality of life.

According to the United Nations children's agency (UNICEF), less than one in three Cambodians have access to latrines and hand washing facilities, one of the lowest rates in Southeast Asia.

The lack of sanitation is not only a serious health risk, Belinda Abraham, UNICEF’s Chief Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Section in Cambodia told UN Radio's Patrick Maigua.

But it's also a security risk for women and girls.
