It is now more than three years since launch of Clean India Mission, and undoubtedly, despite a steady march of sanitation over two decades, it was the first time, the sanitation Programme of India acknowledged the need of making sanitation with universal approach. While implementing such a huge Programme, this is important to look sanitation beyond open defecation free and ensure these facilities be accessible to all. Accessibility Audit is a tool and integral component of ensuring rights of differently abled people. WaterAid India being development partner of Municipal Corporation, Ujjain, conducted an accessibility Audit in all public Toilets of the City with an objective to assess their designs and inform Municipal Corporation so that they realize the accessibility issues, and ensure all toilets adhere the designs considering the needs of differently abled people. Moreover, this is important for a religious city like Ujjain which is visited by significant number of floating population throughout the year.
