Based on the global guide ‘Female-friendly public and community toilets’ developed by WaterAid, UNICEF and Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP), this brief guide has been developed by WaterAid India to help state and urban local bodies in India to understand the requirements that women and girls have from public and community toilets, and address those requirements in city planning and local level implementation.

The guide would help in making public and community toilets more accessible to women and girls, including vulnerable groups like girl children, pregnant women, older women and women with disabilities.
