Latrines and urinals should be available in each health institution with separate and clearly signed facilities for men and women. Latrines should be clean, comfortable and pleasant to use. They should also be accessible to disabled people.
Handwashing facilities need to be constructed close to all latrines and urinal blocks for use by patients and staff. Additional handwashing facilities should be provided in any place where patients are likely to be examined so that staff can wash their hands before and after the examination.
