The resolution declaring World Toilet Day titled, 'Sanitation for All' (A/RES/67/291), was adopted on 24 July 2013. The resolution urges UN Member States and relevant stakeholders to encourage behavioral change and the implementation of policies to increase access to sanitation among the poor, along with a call to end the practice of open-air defecation, which it deemed extremely harmful to public health.
The theme for events marking World Toilet Day in 2018 will be: 'When nature calls'.
