According to UNICEF, about 13,000 children under five die annually in Nepal from diarrhea because of poor hygiene and sanitation.  Government report during International Year of Sanitation 2008 states that more than 14 million people, mainly in rural areas, do not have access to latrines  and over 30 percent do not have access to portable water according to DWIDP. Due to poor sanitation, unsafe drinking water and illiteracy, many people lost their life annually in rural area of country. The major diarrhea outbreak from April 30, 2009 to August 24, 2009 took lives of 464 people where 236 people lost life alone in Jajarkot district.
