Join the queue for the toilet

You are invited to help to form the world's longest toilet queue.  It will mark World Water Day on 22 March and draw attention to the preventable illness caused by poor sanitation.  One of the great achievements of public health in Britain in the Victorian era was to lay water and sewage pipes and keep the two separated.  Many in the world are still waiting and I must say that I used only a few toilets during my months in Africa. (The alternative involved a spade.) 

You can join a virtual queue online or find a real queue near you.  The event aims to influence a High-Level Meeting on Sanitation and Water.
