After the devastating flood of 1998 about 25 people including children of the Patgram Upazila (Lalmonirhat District) died because of the outbreak of diarrhea. It was identified that the poor sanitation is one of the major contributing factors for this high mortality. This incidence of high mortality due to diarrhea became a concern of the local administration. Md. Shariful Alam, Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) shared his concern to local elites, Chairmen & members of the Union Parishads, teachers of different educational institutions, Imams, political leaders, NGO representatives, and people of all section of the Patgram Upazila and wanted to initiate a movement for 100% sanitation coverage in Patgram Upazila.
