It may seem like something that we take for granted, but for many around the world, proper sanitation is a luxury that is out of reach.
More than two billion people do not have access to safe and clean sanitation, putting at risk of contracting several harmful diseases.
In a conference this week called Reinvent the Toilet, Bill Gates took the stage with a flask of human feces to illustrate his point of view that bad sanitation is putting hundreds of millions at risk.
The conference featured 20 projects of technology companies for new types of sanitary facilities that could improve sanitation in the areas without access to water.
