Household sanitation in Uasin Gishu District in Kenya.
In rural Uasin Gisbu District in 1990, 78.2% of the housebolds had pit latrines, 11.3% ventilated improved pit latrines, 0.8% water-borne and 9.7% with no toilet facilities.
On Inspection, 97% of the toilet facilities were in use.
Compost pits were present in 52.3% of the housebolds.
Utensil drying racks were found in 56.0% of the housebolds.
Compared to previous estimates, these levels represent a tremendous improvement in sanitation service coverage.
It is recommended that the impact of wafer and sanitation programmes on health status needs to be evaluated.
There is a need for studies to be done on the value of utensil drying racks in disease control.
