According to report by ActionIndia, about 71% of the public washrooms are in unusable conditions. Women, being more vulnerable to Urinary Tract Infections have to face serious risks in this regard. WHO states that one woman out of every two suffer from UTIs. As a response, women tend to withhold from urinating or do so by semi-squatting. This leads to the formation of kidney stones and weakening of the bladder muscles.
