A new WHO/UNICEF report says that since 1990, almost 2 billion people globally have gained access to improved sanitation and 2.3 billion have gained access to drinking-water from improved sources. Yet experts remain "tremendously" concerned with sanitation. "We are seeing that progress seems to be stuck at about 2.5 billion people, which we saw in the last report as well. But more concerning is that one billion people of those 2.5 have no choice but to openly defecate." WHO
