Both mobiles and toilets are important. But historical data shows that Nepal needs to do more to increase access to toilets and improved sanitation.
In 2005, just ten years before, almost 30 percent or almost one in three Nepalis had access to toilets, while less than 1 percent of people in Nepal had access to mobile phones. Since then, mobile subscriptions have skyrocketed.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case with toilets.
