Threshold / Standard
Appropriate bathing facilities may include bathrooms, showers and other bathing areas at household level, or communal facilities where this is not possible or not the preferred option for the population. To be appropriate, they must be accessible to all users, provide sufficient privacy and safety, have a convenient supply of water and be easy to maintain a clean and hygienic state, including the correct disposal of wastewater. Communal facilities need to be separated by sex, respecting a ratio of 6 doors for women against 4 doors for men, differentiated with use of a pictogramm, lockable from the inside and with light. In order to be safe, their location and their design should be determined based on the needs expressed by the female and male users. Sufficient access is a level of access that allows people to bathe as frequently as they would under normal circumstance
