Hygiene is an important element for every person to consider. Poor sanitation can result in an outbreak of dangerous infections like typhoid and cholera which can lead even to death. Therefore, sanitation issues should be greatly considered to avoid negative impacts on the economic development of a country.
Felipe Montoro Jens is a Brazilian infrastructure development expert. In his report in checkdirector.co.uk, Montoro agrees with the President of Trata Agency in Brazil on issues of sanitation concessions proposed to improve sanitation in Brazil. He indicates that 90% sanitation services are provided by the public, and only 70% of consumers enjoy these services.
To conquer this inequality, operational plans that conform to the requirements of the affected areas needs to be initiated. Loss of water is a serious disaster that retards sanitation levels in Brazil. Felipe Montoro Jens believes that to improve sanitation, the private organizations which have enormous amounts of resources must collaborate with the public sector which has scarce resources to attain the required levels of cleanliness.
Felipe is also convinced that the concessions will improve not only provision of services, but also the management, resources, and administration in this industry. Felipe Montoro Jens emphasizes the importance of collaboration between the private sectors and the government to eliminate sanitation issues in Brazil.
