North Tarawa-the first island in Pacific Region to achieve ODF status

North Tarawa in Kiribati is the first island in the Pacific Region to be declared ‘open defecation-free’, with the entire community having access to sanitation.

The Ministry of Public Works’ project was supported by UNICEF and funded by the European Union.

Around 64 per cent of people on the island previously did not have access to sanitary toilet facilities, UNICEF said.
