"Six of the world's seven billion people have mobile phones - but only 4.5 billion have a toilet, according to a U.N. report.
The shocking statistic has prompted the international organisation to launch a global campaign to improve sanitation for the 2.5 billion people whose health is at risk.
U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson called their plight 'a silent disaster' that reflects the extreme poverty and huge inequalities in the world today.
Eliasson told a press conference that the issue must be addressed immediately for the world to meet the U.N. goal of halving the proportion of people without access to sanitation by the end of 2015.
