Harpic and News18 are gearing up to host a ground-breaking event on April 7, 2023, to celebrate World Health Day by focusing on enhancing sanitation and hygiene standards in India. In line with the World Health Organization’s ‘Health for All’ campaign, the initiative highlights the pivotal role of cleanliness and access to toilets in fostering a healthier nation.
The ‘Cleanliness and Water Initiative’ strives to ensure that everyone, irrespective of gender, ability, caste, or class, has access to clean toilets. CNN News18 will broadcast the live event, featuring Union Health Minister Shri Mansukh Mandaviya as well as celebrities like Sania Mirza, Shilpa Shetty, and Kajal Aggarwal, who will emphasize the integral link between health and sanitation.
The campaign seeks to raise public consciousness about the necessity of clean and accessible toilets while encouraging individuals and communities to join forces to create a healthier, more hygienic society for everyone. Since 2019, Network18 and Harpic’s joint campaign has successfully drawn attention to crucial water and sanitation issues, and it now concentrates on promoting behavioral change throughout India to guarantee access to clean and safe toilets for all.
The World Health Day event will underscore our shared commitment to promoting sanitation and feature various initiatives and their impact as part of the ‘Cleanliness and Water Initiative.’ By engaging social leaders from a wide range of backgrounds, the campaign has effectively mobilized public opinion and support for improved sanitation and hygiene practices in India.
