Health is the one of most important elements of well-being for human beings with great bio-ethical value. There are sufficient evidences to prove that the sanitation level of citizen has deep relationship with public sanitation resource. Thus, it becomes a very hot issue about how to distribute public sanitation resource.China sanitation system developed with high speed under management, investment and support from government. But there are still some problems and the equality of sanitation resources distribution is one of them.If we want to improve the quality of sanitation, we should distribute the resources properly. And government must take the sustainable development into consideration when they design relative policies. The public sanitation resources have to be distributed according to the principle of equality. The principle means any distribution has to satisfy two preconditions: maximizing efficiency and keeping sustainable development.As the subject of distribution, government undertakes great responsibility to improve the sanitation service for people and realize the equality in resources distribution.There would be unexpected consequences when the sanitation resources are allocated unequally. Firstly, some people will lose their basic right to get necessary sanitation services. Secondly, the economy development will be influenced negatively. Thirdly, society will become unstable because of the unequal distribution.To realize the equality in public sanitation resources distribution, government should take effective measures to guide the appropriate investment, try to protect the sanitation resources from being wasted and abused. Then, the citizen lives will get better, and the sustainable development could come to be true.
