Emergency / Development Public Health
Tuff Toilet VIP toilet is specifically designed for large-scale distribution in humanitarian emergencies.
Available in 'pedestal' and 'squat' cultural options.
Tuff Toilet is designed by company owner and mechanical engineer Jonathon Clarke. Jonathon worked for MSF and ICRC in the 1990s, in Liberia, Ivory Coast, Rwanda, Kenya, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, Georgia/Abkhazia, Albania & Kosovo.
"I designed the Tuff Toilet because I could see a need for a VIP latrine system that could be stacked for transporting, and then easily deployed in large scale emergencies."
"Most places I worked we had trouble finding materials for concrete slabs, so that problem is taken care of."
"It has an in-built vent pipe socket and fly trap, so is exactly what you need for large displaced camps with potential public health issues, and is also a good solution for development programs".

Baltazar and Solon (1989) found that the unsanitary disposal of children's faeces was associated with a 34% increase in clinical diarrhoea and a 64% increase in pathogen positive diarrhoea
In temperate conditions (or warmer) most pathogenic bacteria are destroyed within 3-4 months (Winblad and Simpson-Hebert, 2004)
